is gerrymandered to hell and back. Like most Southern states, there are hundreds of thousands of disenfranchised voters who could easily turn Texas blue, were the system not rigged to keep them from casting their votes. Voter suppression is a huge problem. Writing off the South as a lost cause ignores the many, many POC and LGBTQ+ folks who live there and want change.

We should always be mindful of the marginalized people who are stuck living in areas controlled by Confederate sympathizers and progress-hating conservatives. Those marginalized people WILL remember this at the ballot box, but first they need to get to the ballot box. Hopefully Stacy Abrams and her team can make sure that they do.
