Some Texas lawmakers will testify about voting rights before a House subcommittee on Thursday.  Enough Texas Democrats have left the state to protest a voting bill and that has brought the state House in Austin to a halt.  They fled to Washington, DC to run out the clock on the special session Republican Governor Greg Abbott called to consider the election bill, among other measures.  However, Abbott said earlier this month he’s undeterred by what Democrats have done as he promised to call an unlimited amount of special sessions.  Abbott explained, “they can run, but they cannot hide.”
