CNN is anticipating another redistricting showdown in Texas. The network's Ed Lavandera has interviewed state Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, D-San Antonio, who also serves as chair of the Mexican American Legislative Caucus. MALC maintains the four new congressional districts Texas earned through massive population growth over the last decade should better reflect the growth in the state's minority communities.
The story features several clips from The Texas Tribune's TribLive event in April with the chairs of the Legislature's redistricting committees, state Sen. Kel Seliger, R-Amarillo, and state Rep. Burt Solomons, R-Carrollton. The congressional map passed by Republicans is headed to Gov. Rick Perry's desk, but both chairs admit it will likely see a legal battle.
