The Fun Never Stops in Texas

July 1979
New Republic;7/7/79, Vol. 181 Issue 1/2, p6
The article reports that the 66th session of the Texas legislature ended unresolved due to the walk out of 12 Senate Killer Bees. Due to this, the conservative Democratic leadership in the legislature, led by Lieutenant Governor Bill Hobby and House Speaker Bill Clayton, did not get the split primary they wanted with voting for party presidential candidates preceding selection of state candidates. Furthermore, liberal Democrats should opt to put off their plans to take over state government.
