Statement from Congr. Doggett on Today's SCOTUS Opinion


Congressman Doggett released the following statement to Burnt Orange Report today on the SCOTUS opinion, emphasis mine: "There is good news and bad news. The good news is that only Justice Clarence Thomas insisted on imposing the crooked Perrymandered map and rejecting the vital preclearance requirement of the Voting Rights Act. The bad news is that the Supreme Court did not affirm every aspect of the ruling by Judges Garcia and Rodriquez in San Antonio, so our primary election is not likely to proceed on April 3. Yet nothing in the Supreme Court order precludes a final congressional map ...


Lloyd Doggett Helps Secure Medals for Mendoza


During World War II, military recruiters went to the high school in Hebbronville, Texas. They found a number of young men who were willing to answer the call for dutry including, a 17 year old named, Benjamin Mendoza. With permission from his parents, Mendoza join the Army and was sent to Camp Roberts in California for 17 weeks of boot camp training. Upon completion of boot camp, Mendoza and his fellow soldiers were put on a ship headed to the front lines when word came down that his father was seriously ill back in Texas. Mendoza was taken off the ship, given a one week leave of absence and ...


Rep. Doggett Shifts Emphasis to Latino Voters


U.S. Rep. Lloyd Dogget (D-Austin) has been serving the people of the State of Texas in some capacity or another for most of his life. As a congressman since 1995, he has represented mostly the Austin area, although with redistricting these boundaries have changed somewhat. The current redistricting snafu has forced Doggett to, at once file for Congressional District 25 (Austin), while he actively campaigns in Congressional District 35 (running from the Austin area to San Antonio.) We spoke to Doggett this week to ask him about his campaign, what he has learned about Texas’ burgeoning ...

Lloyd Doggett: "The last time Republicans held hostage a resolution to ensure that our country’s bills were paid cost us more than $1 billion in added interest and slowed the economic recove
The Truth-o-Meter says: Half-True | Lloyd Doggett says Republicans cost country more than $1 billion and slowed economy in delaying 2011 debt-ceiling hike U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett disputes the notion that a partial government shutdown might be needed to make President Barack Obama negotiate spending cuts and long-term changes affecting Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. The Austin Democrat, reacting to U.S. Sen. John Cornyn’s Jan. 3, 2012, Houston Chronicle commentary, agreed that fiscal sanity matters but, Doggett wrote on Facebook, "that sanity can hardly be realized by jeopardizing the full faith and credit of the United States." His punch line: "The last time Republicans held hostage a resolution to ensure that our country’s bills ... >> More
Lloyd Doggett: Says he represents or has represented about half the San Antonio-rooted district in which he seeks election.
The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True | Lloyd Doggett says he represents or has represented about half of the residents of Congressional District 35 Appearing with fellow Democrats seeking a new U.S. House seat, Rep. Lloyd Doggett of Austin defended his decision to run in the 35th Congressional District, which snakes from downtown San Antonio north into southeastern Travis County. On the April 13, 2012, edition of KLRN-TV’s "Texas Week," Doggett pointed out that this is the second decade that the state’s ruling Republicans, including Gov. Rick Perry, have tried to knock him out of the House by drawing district lines seemingly to his disadvantage. Doggett, who is not seeking re-election in his newly Republican-leaning 25th Congressional ... >> More
Lloyd Doggett: Travis County is "surrounded by red counties."
The Truth-o-Meter says: True | Historically 'blue' Travis County surrounded by 'red' counties In a video endorsement of Andy Brown for Travis County judge, U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett stressed the Austin lawyer’s past chairmanship of the county’s Democratic Party, adding: "I know he shares our values. He will stand up to the Republicans. We are surrounded by red counties." Six counties enwrap the capital’s county: Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Blanco, Burnet and Williamson. Unlike Democratic-blue Travis, are they all Republican-red? A standard way of gauging whether a state is red or blue, so to speak, is whether the Republican or Democratic nominee won the state in the latest presidential election. In 2012, Republican ... >> More

The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True | Republicans won more House seats than more popular Democrats, though not entirely because of how districts were drawn The Democratic member of Congress from Austin, otherwise represented in Washington, D.C. by Republicans, says Democrats nationally got more votes in 2012 yet Republicans ended up with their House majority. "During the last election, Democrats won over a million votes more than Republicans," Rep. Lloyd Doggett said in a Nov. 4, 2013, talk at the University of Texas at San Antonio. "But because of the way" House "districts are designed, the Republicans got 33 more members of the House of Representatives than the Democrats did." The first part of his claim sounded familiar, but is it right that this ... >> More
