US Supreme Court turns down challenge to Texas' interim maps

If there was still any confusion about this year’s general election in Texas, the U.S. Supreme Court put an end to it on Wednesday.


Justice Antonin Scalia denied a request by the League of United Latin American Citizens to declare illegal the interim congressional and legislative maps a federal court in San Antonio ordered in March.


“The application for stay presented to Judge Scalia and by him referred to the Court is denied,” the high court said in a one-line statement. snip


For now, though, Wednesday ruling means the Texas Secretary of State and election administrators in each of the 254 counties in the state should no longer worry about last-minute changes to the list of congressional and legislative candidates on the Nov. 6 ballot.Scissors-32x32.png
