SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A congressman's lawyer says the Texas attorney general has agreed to a temporary voting map that could keep the April 3 date for primary elections in Texas.
Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar's lawyer Rolando Rios tells The Associated Press that the attorney general agreed not to challenge a proposal that would give Texas two new Hispanic congressional seats.
A San Antonio federal court gave the state and minority groups until Monday to reach a compromise, or see the Texas primaries pushed back for a second time. The groups say the original map was discriminatory.
Still, some minority groups aren't supporting the new map. Luis Vera, an attorney for the League of United Latin American Citizens, says it "means absolutely nothing."
The attorney general's office didn't immediately return a phone call.
