    File - In this May 30, 2013 file photo, Texas state Sen. Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa looks at maps on display prior to a Senate Redistricting committee hearing, in Austin, Texas. Attorney General Eric Holder says Texas is the first place that he will intervene to defend against what he calls attacks on the voting rights of minorities, but it is also the only state where the federal government has a clear opportunity to get involved, experts say.

    FILE - In this April 16, 2013 file photo, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy of Calif. speaks during news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. Republicans’ knack for congressional redistricting helps them control the U.S. House. But it may be working against them on immigration and other issues important to presidential elections. House Republicans generally represent far fewer Hispanics than do Democrats, thanks in part to a politicized redistricting process that packs minorities into Democratic-leaning districts. That leaves GOP representatives with lots of white conservatives, many of whom oppose “amnesty” for immigrants living here illegally, lawmakers say. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)

    House Speaker William J. Howell, R-Stafford, declars the redistricting bill from the Senate improper and should not be considered during the floor session of the House of Delegates at the State Capitol in Richmond, Va. Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013. The speaker's procedural ruling clears away a major standing provocation to the Senate's 20 Democrats. They had threatened to deny the Senate's 20 Republicans the 21st vote they would need to advance key legislation this year, including transportation funding and the state budget.

    FILE -- This Dec. 7, 2011 file photo shows Arizona State Senate Majority Leader Andy Biggs (R) speaking to the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission in Phoenix. It's early on in the Arizona legislative session, but so far the proposals described by one top Republican as "esoteric" and criticized by Democrats as unconstitutional have dominated the headlines. Biggs and House Speaker Andy Tobin are tasked with determining whether proposals advance to a full legislative debate. AP Photo/Matt York, file)

    FILE - In this June 7, 2012 file photo, Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y. speaks during a news conference on Capitol Hill. When the results are counted this Tuesday, Americans are poised to resoundingly rehire roughly 350 of the 535 members of the House and Senate despite railing for months about an ineffective, bitterly divided legislature. The once-in-a-decade redrawing of congressional districts is one of the main reasons why so many lawmakers will return to Washington _ and the first election after that politically driven process is typically a high point _ but redistricting isn’t the only reason. The power of incumbency with its name recognition and cash advantage also is responsible. (AP Photo/Haraz N. Ghanbari, File)

    This undated illustration provided by the Texas Legislative Council shows PLANH309, the court-ordered interim House redistricting plan for Texas. A federal court in San Antonio issued new Texas congressional and state House maps on Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2012, just in time for the state to finally hold its twice-delayed primary on May 29. The ruling by a three-judge panel could clear the way for elections, if none of the nine groups contesting the state's political districts files an appeal. All sides were studying the complex maps to determine their next move. (AP Photo/Texas Legislative Council)

The once-a-decade fight over political boundaries in Texas has been so frenetic that a once Democrat, Pena, who switched his party for the GOP, saw his state House district redrawn solidly blue and opted against re-election, then got new hope from the U.S. Supreme Court that it might go red again. Pena's situation epitomizes a particularly confusing redistricting clash in Texas. (AP Photo/Eric Gay, File)
