Doggett Reaction to Republican Texas Senate Redistricting Committee Map

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) releases the following statement regarding the newly-released Republican Texas Senate Redistricting Committee map:

“Fearing voters, Republicans once again engage in extreme gerrymandering to carve up neighborhoods and communities of interest in Travis, Hays and Bexar Counties—aiming to dilute strong voices. With lines shaped like snakes, tentacles, and dragons, parts of both Travis and Bexar are included in five different districts. San Antonio and Austin are connected by a sliver only slightly wider than I-35. Since this is only the initial Senate draft, which can be altered in both the Senate and House, what’s clearly demanded is more unity, more democracy, and less division and dilution. Any personal decision based on this draft is premature. The focus now should not be on the particular district from which any individual would seek election but on demanding less crooked lines for the entire State.”
