Texas will move primary date to May 29

A Texas court has ordered the state's primaries to be moved from April 25 to May 29, making it less likely its Republican presidential contest will impact who the GOP nominee is.

This is the second time Texas has had to move its primaries back: It was initially slotted for March 6, Super Tuesday, and would have played a major role in the Republican nomination process.

Both moves were forced because of repeated delays in the redistricting process and complicated candidate filings for local and congressional races — filing isn't allowed in districts with borders still in flux.

The date change comes on the heels of a drawn-out battle over redistricting that has yet to conclude, though the court has put out an interim map that is likely to be used this election.
