Looking Forward to Welcoming Texas’s Good Troublemakers

Washington, D.C. – This afternoon, U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) issues this statement regarding the Democrats in the Texas Legislature breaking quorum today as he prepares to welcome them to Washington:

“Greg Abbott and his Republican cohorts have messed with Texan voters one too many times. Our Texas Democrats are breaking quorum rather than being accomplices to breaking democracy. They rightly recognize that our democracy is only as strong as our voting rights. With Texas already ground zero for voter suppression, these courageous leaders are defending our democracy. Looking forward to welcoming these good troublemakers to Washington soon.”

Their “Good Trouble” to defend democracy is reminiscent of Rep. Doggett’s own participation in the “Killer Bees,” breaking a quorum long ago to prevent interference in primary elections.
