The congressional district map released Tuesday leaves Travis County in five parts, and leaves Austin District 25 heavily Republican.

Rep. Lloyd Doggett has been campaigning in 25 and newly-created District 35 since the legislature released maps during the last session. In a statement released after the interim maps, it seems clear Doggett is focused on 35.


"As an effective advocate for schools, veterans, health care and retirement security, my service fits well with the neighborhoods that have now been joined from South San Antonio to North Austin.

I will continue the visits with working families that I already have underway. And I will continue to stand up to Rick Perry and other extremists, whose misguided policies are threatening our families’ security."
