From the very beginning, many of us warned Governor Perry that his crooked redistricting maps would not withstand judicial scrutiny. We were vindicated. Yesterday, a three-judge panel in Washington ruled against him.
As I told reporters, "This ruling is a victory for voting rights and all those who believe in fair elections. Three judges, including two appointed by President George W. Bush, have upheld our contention that this crooked map was intentionally discriminatory. My personal focus remains on ensuring that families along the I-35 corridor continue to have a strong voice in Congress."
