The court in Washington DC, charged with pre-clearing the redistricting maps Texas lawmakers drew during the last legislative session, is asking for further explanation on the so-called "Doggett District."

The Texas Latino Redistricting Task Force (TLRTF) is arguing that U.S. Congressional District 25 is not a coalition district and therefore not protected under the Voting Rights Act.

A coalition district happens when more than one group of racial minorities or language minorities exist in an area and come together to elect a candidate of the coalition’s choice.

TLRTF wants the DC District Court court to see that CD 25 is an "Anglo majority district in which Anglo voters dominate the Democratic Party."

It has until March 13 to submit further documentation in support of that claim. That date is leading some in the know to believe the DC court will issue its ruling on the maps a couple of days later.

Lead League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) prosecutor on the redistricting case, Luis Vera, Jr., is among those who think the DC court will act within the next week. If that happens and the judges rule CD 25 is in fact protected and should go back to its bench mark boundaries (the pre-redistricting or base map version), everything else would shift as a result.

Vera said TLRTF is the lone actor in making this claim on CD 25; adding that LULAC believes CD 25 should be protected for its minority population make up as a coalition district.

That would mean the current interim maps federal judges in San Antonio issued last month would likely change and push back the primary election date once again. Right now, the parties are planning for a May 29th election.

County officials from across the state have testified in court they would need as many as 10 weeks from when the final maps come out to properly prepare for an election.

So coming out of Super Tuesday, it looked like Texas could be a tie-breaking state with 155 delegates up for grabs. Though if the primary happens say, after June 5, the date of California’s election -a state with even more delegates, 172- the Lone Star State’s role in determining the GOP presidential nominee would be further diminished.
