The GOP-led Texas state senate just released a draft congressional map, and the gerrymandering we’ve been warning about is brazen.
Republicans have made it clear that they don’t care about a fair electoral process - they only care about retaining power. #txlege
Right now, state legislatures across the country are setting new boundaries for state legislative and congressional districts. And in many states, Republicans are drawing maps that allow them to hold onto power.
In Texas, for example, Republicans recently passed a law making voting harder, especially for people of color. Now they’re advancing a new congressional map that’s tilted in their favor and doesn’t reflect the state’s growth. twitter.com/DemRedistrict/…
And in Georgia, Republicans released a congressional map that decreases the voting power of communities of color – including African Americans in a historically Black district – and ignores how the state has changed.
If we don’t stand up for democracy, we’ll see this type of gerrymandering happen in even more states. It’s why @DemRedistrict is fighting for #FairMaps. And it’s why the Senate must pass the Freedom to Vote Act to protect our communities from partisan gerrymandering.
@BarackObama And it’s exactly why they did the audit in Arizona 3 times. Has nothing do due with fraud it was all about gaining more information to re draw the maps to flip it back red in 2024
@BarackObama President Obama: I am hoping you will be willing to speak out against the brutal slaughter of 1428 dolphins and Whales in the Faroe Islands. We need someone well respected and known around the world. Please help make this the last year of the slaughter. Thank you
