Texas Democrats once again ran away to another state in the face of congressional redistricting. Eleven Democrat state senators went to New Mexico to deny the Republican-controlled Texas Senate its necessary quorum. The Republicans tried legal measures to bring them back, but the Texas Supreme Court ignored them. That has forced the Texas Republicans to take measures of their own, like voting to fine each Democrat $5000 per day absent from the Legislature. The Democrats have vowed not to pay it, but there isn't much they can do now.
