A Cameron County Democrat joins fellow state lawmakers in a boycott protest of a voting rights bill. State rep Alex Dominguez from Brownsville was present yesterday with dozens of other dissenters in Washington, D.C. where they held a media event.
Dominguez says the lawmakers walked out of a special state assembly session in Austin called by Governor Greg Abbott to address a voting rights measure supported by Republicans. He said the decision to leave Texas was not easy. He said, “it’s the right thing to do to preserve voting rights in Texas.”
