A sixth Texas Democrat who fled the state in an attempt to stop a Republican voter bill has tested positive for COVID.
Cara Santucci, the spokeswoman for the Texas House Democrats confirmed the case but did not say who the Democrat is.
“We’re focusing on our daily testing, following and going beyond CDC guidelines, social distancing and wearing masks as much as possible. We’re just not going to release daily counts,” Santucci said.
Per the NY Post “over the weekend, five other state Democratic lawmakers tested positive for COVID-19.
The group made the trip to DC to press Congress to pass federal election reform legislation, which would supersede the Texas bill that prevents local officials from sending unsolicited absentee ballot applications.”
