Harris Co. State Rep. Districts under Proposed Settlement

Attorney General Abbott has released proposed interim maps that are agreed to by some, but not all, of the parties to the redistricting litigation.  The San Antonio court still must rule on the maps.  If the court adopts the proposed maps, Harris County would have 24 State Representative seats:  12 Democratic and 12 Republican.  Below are the vote percentages for each district from the 2008 Presidential election:

Beverly Woolley's seat becomes Hubert Vo's 136; Sarah Davis receives a moderately Republican district; and Ken Legler's seat remains marginally Republican.  The HD 136 Republican Primary race (DeAyala, Holm, Schofield, Witt) goes away, and the HD 137 Democratic Primary (Madden, Smith, Winkler, Wu) is off and running!
