The Supreme Court has thrown out electoral maps drawn by federal judges in San Antonio that favored minorities.

According to the Quorum Report, the order stated, "Because it is unclear whether the District Court for the Western District of Texas followed the appropriate standards in drawing interim maps for the 2012 Texas elections, the orders implementing those maps are vacated, and the cases are remanded for further proceedings consistent with this opinion."

The Supreme Court’s decision leaves office holders like Congressman Lloyd Doggett in limbo. He’s continuing to campaign as if his district will stretch from East Austin south to San Antonio.

"I’ve been in San Antonio every week this year and will be there again next week, just in case this ‘Perry-mandered’ map resurfaces and I have to seek election in a district where half the people are folks I’ve never represented before," Rep. Doggett said.

He believes his district could be redrawn to cover a smaller, more concentrated area. It would be a plus in his eyes, because he says long, narrow districts compromise lawmakers’ ability to serve their constituents.

"You cannot have members of Congress that are as accessible if they are stretched out across hundreds of miles, or even 90 miles to San Antonio," he said.

Doggett’s still wary when new maps will be ready. A three-judge panel in San Antonio’s tasked with creating them, but not the way they did previously.

Under the previous maps, minority groups complained they were denied sufficient voting power by Republican lawmakers who sought to maximize GOP electoral gains in violation of the landmark Voting Rights Act.

Steve Munisteri with the Republican Party of Texas thinks it’s too early to tell if the GOP will get the advantage.

"The ruling from the Supreme Court has been fast enough that, if the Bexar County three-judge panel can draw maps within a week, maybe even two weeks, we can still hold April 3rd," he said.

Some are skeptical the primary could be pushed back a few weeks, maybe even into May, creating the possibility of two primaries.

"Generally speaking, the more we delay the elections, the less input we are going to have into the presidential primary process, the smaller the turnout and more ideological the likely primary voters," Harvey Kronberg with the Quorum Report said.

Controversy over the maps arose from redrawing political boundaries based on results of the 2010 census which found that Texas added more than four million new residents, mostly Latinos and African-Americans, since 2000.
