Federal court issues proposed interim congressional districts for 2012 elections in Texas
Source: AP via the Washington Post

AUSTIN, Texas Minorities will make up the majority of voters in three additional Texas congressional districts under a proposed redistricting map released by a federal court Wednesday, which is expected to give Democrats an advantage in the 2012 elections as they seek to win back the House.

Minorities currently are the majority in 10 out of 32 Texas districts and the new map will raise that to 13 out of 36, if the court gives the map final approval as expected.

This looks like a good plan. The 3 new Texas Congressional districts will he minority which means nationally 3 possible pickups for the Democrats. Additionally in the Texas House, there is the potential to pick up as many as 12 House seats.
