Texas Democrats: Fighting Back

Despite losing all the statewide contests, Democrats in the Legislature successfully defended all their incumbents, held on to all open Democratic seats, and have actually picked up four, possibly five, more seats in the State House. True, there's a long way to go before they take back either House or Senate, but these are still historic gains and shouldn't be overlooked.

UPDATE: Juan Garcia has defeated the loathesome Gene Seaman, for a total of five Democratic pick-ups in the House.
