Thanks to a tip from via email from Sam Willson, this news from Austin:

A federal three-judge panel has upheld new boundaries drawn for the state's 32 congressional districts, giving Republicans a chance to win up to 22 of the seats in elections this year.

The GOP pushed the new map through the Legislature this year to try to overturn a 17-15 Democratic majority in the Texas congressional delegation. Democrats and civil rights groups challenged the plan in court, but were overruled. An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is expected.
