Heather Cox Richardson writes about Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott's timing in moving to make good on his threat to defund the legislature after Democrats left the building to stop a bill that would remake the Texas election system: "In part, Abbott is likely trying to distract Texans from yet another crisis in the state's independent energy grid, operated by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). Four months ago, the electric grid failed during a cold wave, leaving more than 3 million people without electricity or heat."
