Sounds Like There Will Be No Emergency SCOTUS Action in the Texas Voter ID Case

Earlier today I wrote about how Texas, which had indicated an intent to appeal, could seek emergency relief from the Supreme Court to put its ID law into effect for November’s elections.

But now comes this from AP: “State Attorney General Greg Abbott said he will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, “where we are confident we will prevail.” He also told the Associated Press late Thursday that there is now definitely not enough time to salvage the law for the November election.”

So we are just waiting on Pa. and South Carolina as states whose ID laws are on hold (and Wisconsin, if the Supreme Court takes up AG van Hollen’s invitation to look at this case again—very unlikely).
