Primary election

Hello everyone,
Are you confused about the Texas Primary season?  Believe me you aren't alone.  There has even been some speculation about missing it all together.  However, here is the latest.
The San Antonio panel has moved passed the possibility of having anything in April.  Now the date that is in focus is May 29, but that is only about 75% accurate. There is some talk about June also.
This whole mess is being caused by the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which I believe Texas should have been removed from needing to comply with years ago.  Now it is being used to punish us, and I sincerely believe the intention is to not allow Texas to have any 'say' in the Republican Presidential choice.  Bottom line is we can't have an election until we have maps that define where the precincts and districts are.  The 4 new Congressional Districts are the biggest issue.
Not only is the Primary being effected , but also effects the possible dates for a Runoff.  In addition there are some very serious consequences to the entire Republican Convention process from Precincts to the National convention and the election of delegates.
Keeping all this in mind, I will keep you up to date as I get information.
