We are getting Doggett

I was pleased to see that after the latest Texas redistricting happens that Lloyd Doggett will again be our Congressman. It will be nice to actually have a Congressman who represents my views. I'm not used to that one. He's been against the Iraq war since the start, and is such a thorn in the side of the repugs that I think getting rid of him was one of the main goals of Delay in the last redistricting. Well, look who's still around and who isn't?

Doggett still has a battle on his hands though. He got more of Travis County back, but they also gave him some very red neighborhoods so sailing will not be smooth.
