Our Texas StateHouse went from 76-74 Republican to 99-51, from split to 1 vote shy of 2/3rds majority and quorum. You have to look back past Reconstruction to find a similar advantage.
A return to the Norm? I don’t think so.
Redistricting is coming up, Texas is going to gain 4 new seats, and these 99 Republicans are going to decide how they are drawn.
Let the Dems go hide out of State this go around of redistricting to prevent a quorum: they’ll need every last one of them to do so.
Texas has always been different. In fact I wish all other states thought and acted like the Texas voters.
The following states are more or less hopeless : California, New York, Connecticut, Vermont, Rhode Island, Delaware, Maryland, Hawaii and Washington.
Glad they’re the minority in this Union.
