A possible agreement on new interim redistricting maps could keep the Texas primary on April 3. An attorney for Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar told the Associated press that Attorney General Greg Abbott agreed not to challenge a proposal that would create two new Hispanic congressional seats.

Today had been the deadline for the state and minority groups to agree on interim maps, if they wanted to keep from pushing back the primary, again.

YNN has reached out to the Attorney General’s office, but Abbott hasn’t commented yet.

Some minority groups, however, say they still are not satisfied with the temporary maps.

Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for a decision on the preclearance trial on the original redistricting maps drawn by the legislature. A Washington D.C. district court is deciding if the maps violate the voting rights act. That decision is not expected until early March.
