The Texas Democratic Party released a statement following the release of interim Congressional redistricting maps, Wednesday.

"As we begin to review these maps in more depth, we are pleased that Texas is on the road to fair elections in which the voters, rather than Republican mapmakers, will get to determine the outcome. The maps enacted by the legislature were an egregious example of Republican overreach and a complete disrespect of the changing Texas demographics.

After the insane proposals D.C. Republicans have put forth like eliminating social security and the Department of Education, we could not be more excited to be a step closer to an election in which we can hold Republicans accountable for their failed policies."
