ACT Today – 10 Yr. Congressional Map is the Battle

Will Conservatives Show Up?

I have taken an e-mail I received and information from the Texas Tribune to create this post!! Please read and respond.

The people who run the government are those who show up!! Conservatives it is time to SHOW UP!! Make those calls!!

“Fellow Texas conservatives, we have only a few hours to capitalize on ONE MORE CHANCE to get the best possible map drawn for Texas Congressional representation for the next decade! And the hearings on the NEW CONGRESSIONAL MAP take place this Thursday and Friday! (TH 10:45 a.m. for the House; FR 9:00 a.m. for the Senate.)

Doggett Ready To Battle

The Governor has put the Congressional map on the special session agenda, and the map that currently is being considered is C125 by Rep. Solomons and Sen. Seliger. While it’s better than some maps that have been floated in the past, it still gives the ulta-liberal Lloyd Doggett a new winnable seat (Dist. 35) and doesn’t maximize the potential Republican seats!

However, there is a BETTER MAP available which addresses both those issues – Map C116. This map meets the legal requirements for Congressional redistricting. And with just a few more committee member votes, it can make it to the floor of each legislative body!

You can use this link to see both maps: http://gis1.tlc.state.tx.us/

Although Lloyd Dogget is ready to battle.

Be Sure and Click Photo from the Texas Tribune to hear audio of  Ben Philpott of KUT News and the Tribune discuss the newly unveiled map with Lloyd Dogget.

“I am ready to stand my ground, Austin is to precious to surrender to these Tea Party Extremists.” Lloyd Dogget

“Listed below are the Senate and the House Redistricting committees. If you agree that C116 is indeed a better map for Republicans, and if your Senator or Representative is on the committee, PLEASE CONTACT HIM/HER IMMEDIATELY AND URGE SUPPORT FOR THE TRULY REPUBLICAN MAP, C 116! You can link directly to their emails from the list, or you can call512/463-4630 and ask for any legislator. If your senator and representative aren’t on the Redistricting committee, please contact them anyway and ask their support for map C116 on the floor.


It is impossible to overstate the importance of this Congressional map – it literally will determine the SUCCESS OF THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT in D.C. for the next decade. Our country is at stake – PLEASE MAKE YOUR CALLS AND SEND YOUR EMAILS!  Thanks.”
