Texas Electoral Maps at Issue before Supreme Court

The Supreme Court is wrestling with what to do about holding elections in Texas for the state legislature and Congress.

The justices appeared unsure Monday at arguments over Texas' electoral districts about whether primary elections could take place in early April or whether legal wrangling between the GOP-dominated state government and minority groups would take longer to resolve.

At issue is whether Latinos and African-Americans who accounted for the vast majority of the state's 4 million new residents in the 2010 Census have adequate political power.

The justices struggled with whether the state's plan or maps drawn by federal judges in San Antonio that are friendlier to minorities should take effect, or whether some new effort should be made.
