The Texas Democrats who fled the state to stop a vote on a contentious election bill have turned down state Speaker of the House Dade Phelan's offer to charter a plane to return the group from Washington D.C. back to Texas.

"The Speaker should save his money. We won't be needing a plane anything soon, as our work to save democracy from the Trump Republicans is just getting started," the Democrats said in a statement.

"We're not going anywhere and suggest instead the speaker end this charade of a session, which is nothing more than a monthlong campaign commercial for Gov. Abbott's re-election. The speaker should adjourn the House Sine Die."
