Another Special Election, Another Really Bad Sign For The GOP

Another Special Election, Another Really Bad Sign for the GOPOne might describe Arizona’s 8th Congressional District as … nondescript.

Supreme Court to consider Texas redistricting

Supreme Court to consider Teas redistricting case

The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments Tuesday on whether Texas’s legislature discriminated against Hispanic and black citizens when drawing two congressional districts and a host of legislative ones.

If the court decides against Texas, it could force a redrawing of the map that could have ramifications for the 35th District, now held by Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D), and the 27th District, which was formerly represented by Rep. Blake Farenthold (R).

It’s possible some of the House districts surrounding those two could also be affected.
