Texas Redistricting

The Supreme Court will hear arguments concerning Texas' redistricting on the second week of January.  They'll have to decide on whose map to consider for the upcoming primary election:
the state legislature's or the map drawn up by a three-judge panel in San Antonio.

This, of course, has our intrepid elections administrator fretting over the possiblity of holding separate primaries while the details are ironed out.

Will it matter to Rick Perry that his own state might not participate in Super Tuesday (March 6)?  This delay will surely confuse the public, and it might lead some to trick potential voters into voting on phantom days.  We'll surely visit this subject again as it affects one local candidate running for state office.
