Texas Voters No Longer to do the Two Step

For nearly 40 years, the Texas Democratic Party has conducted a two tiered method for selecting delegates to the National Convention.  Some delegates (75%) would be apportioned on the basis of the primary vote, but others (25%) would be selected in caucuses held after the polls closed on election day. But the “Texas Two-Step” tradition is officially over. The Democratic National Committee asked the state party to pick between a caucus and a primary and the primary system won out.  Texas Democrats tried to keep that system, but the DNC forced them to pick one, so they went with a primary.  Thus ends the “Texas Two-Step.”   Let the Texas Rhumba begin.
