Don't Mess With Texas Democrats

Texas Democrats are once again making history. Right now, Texas Democratic lawmakers are walking out to break quorum in defense of voting rights in Texas and block further consideration of anti-voter bills HB 3 and SB 1 a core subject of an irregular special session called by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott.

1. Senate Dems need to learn how to fight - like TX Dems do.

3. Absolutely. Hopefully Texas Democrats can pass some fire into them while they're in DC.

2. In 2003 they lead the way to try and stop similar Tex Repug voting hijacking

In 2003 the Repug's started a re-districting process ( mid census requirement timing). This is highly unusual for any state to do. Don't even know if it was really "constitutional". The Dem's at the time tried to stop it with the same tactic. Leave the state. It didn't quite work due to multiple special session shenanigans. But it was a valiant effort.

Texas Dem's are real fighters......
