Texas Dems Win!

Big news from Texas — the Democratic state legislators who walked out when the Republican majority tried to force legislative districts to be redrawn in the GOP’s favor have returned to Austin victorious. State House Speaker Tom Craddick promised them that, if they returned and restored a quorum, the redistricting issue would be dropped for the remainder of the legislative session. Good to see that Dems who fight haven’t become a completely extinct species!
