    Per the TX Constitution, Gov. Goodhair has called the Lege back into session to address the previous GOP gerrymandering. He and state AG Abbott are trying to glue in place the "interim" court-imposed re districting map from last year, after the Lege-drawn map was partially successfully challenged in court by LULAC and others.  We shall see.

    Also trying to ram through some anti-choice and other anti-women bills, while refusing to address public education underfunding.  Let's see how the folks in Texas like THAT!

    These tactics, and ignoring the slow but inevitable demographic tide, doom the GOP in Texas.  Hard to say for sure how fast things will turn, but I think the GOP is simply desperate and clutching at straws.  Hide and watch.
