Kos is apoplectic because Texas Republicans are discussing the possibility of delaying the March primaries if the redistricting hasn’t taken place by then. He terms this “canceling” the elections and terms it “par for the course” for the GOP, since “Republicans aren’t always the strongest proponents of fair elections.”
These aren’t “elections,” they’re primaries. Primaries are moved for all sorts of reasons all the time.
I oppose the efforts of the Republicans to redistrict in an off year because it sets a bad precedent. But until either the Democrats return and allow a vote or the Republicans give up their quest to redistrict, the district lines aren’t settled. It would be rather silly to have primaries based on the extant lines but then have several candidates become ineligible due to residency requirements if new lines do wind up being drawn.
