A panel of three federal judges reconfigured 13 Texas congressional districts Tuesday, a move affecting nearly half of the state's House delegation. In ordering the changes, the judges sought to eliminate racial gerrymandering in three mostly minority districts in Houston and Dallas. Ten adjoining districts were affected when those that had been ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court were redrawn. Under the judicial plan, an open primary will be held in the affected districts Nov.

As the campaign turns into its final weekend, Democrats and Republicans remain locked in tight races for the governorships of rapidly growing Florida, Texas and California--the decisive battles in the parties' decade-long struggle to control next year's congressional redistricting. In California, some polls show Republican Sen. Pete Wilson with a narrow lead over Democrat Dianne Feinstein, although on Thursday the Los Angeles Times Poll showed the race too close to call. In Florida, former Sen.

In another setback for black and Latino lawmakers, the Supreme Court struck down "majority-minority" congressional districts in Texas and North Carolina on Thursday and said again that electoral boundaries may not be drawn strictly along racial lines. The 5-4 rulings mark the third time in four years that the court's conservative majority has condemned "racial gerrymandering."
