Changes in the interim redistricting maps are forcing at least one candidate out of the CD-10 race. Dan Grant, the only democrat in the race, announced today that he is withdrawing from the race. He says he was gerrymandered out, and cited changes made to the map by a San Antonio district court.

In a statement, Grant said said:

"In the latest version of Congressional maps the 10th District has been redrawn to solidly protect Congressman McCaul. This latest iteration of CD-10 is the same as in the illegal map drafted by the Republican-controlled state legislature last year whose primary goal was to disenfranchise minority voters, dilute Democratic voting strength, and protect Republican incumbents.

I will continue to do all that I can to support the principles of our campaign: real representation for all Americans, a government that is focused on the people and not on personal politics, and working for the future of our great country. The support that our campaign received shows that all Texans are hungry for these principles, and I’ll continue to work for them."
