TEXAS REDISTRICTING….Well, I was hoping the Texas Republicans would just keep hitting each over the head forever, but no such luck:
Texas House and Senate negotiators reached an agreement in principle Wednesday to redraw the state’s congressional boundaries, settling a dispute among Republican lawmakers, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said.
After days of closed-door meetings, legislators reached a deal after U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay met with state officials in the Capitol for three straight days this week. The final sticking point was over how to draw districts in West Texas.
“It is my hope that we can have a final map that we can show you tomorrow morning,” Dewhurst said.
More about Texas Republicans later tonight.
