While the GOP Governor claims he’ll call for a special session after special session until the next election, Democrats refuse to stay.

Texas state House Democrats have left the state in an effort to block Republicans from passing a restrictive new voting law in the remaining 27 days of the special legislative session called by Governor Greg Abbott.

Two airplanes carrying the majority of Democrats left Texas for Washington, DC. They have largely kept their planning secret because they can be legally compelled to return to the state Capitol and believed law enforcement could be sent to track them down.

Texas Republicans are fixing to review options for their voter suppression special session after Democrats deny quorum.
The 58 Democrats pulled a Ted Cruz and left town, but instead of going to Mexico and leaving his constituents in the cold, they left for Washington DC.and gave the Governor the cold shoulder proposed legislation that could make it more difficult to vote.

City Images wouldn’t be the first to point out that it may ok to leave The lone star state if you’re a Texas politician as long as you have a little wheelie bag a boarding pass that says Cancún and blame it on your family. Now, we are not suggesting that we move to a system where Senators run off to Cancun or some Republican lawmakers who have traveled to Russia.
