Several Texas Democrats who fled the state to avoid a quorum vote on a voting bill have contracted COVID-19. According to reports on Saturday, two more lawmakers tested positive for the virus while staying in Washington D.C.

This comes one day after the first of the nearly 60 fully-vaccinated Democrat lawmakers tested positive. The Democrats were ordered a 10 day isolation.

 

The Democrat lawmakers left the Lone Star State earlier this week to escape their responsibility to vote on a GOP led election reform bill. Democrats have fought the bill every step of the way due to its provisions to strengthen voter ID laws and ban drive-thru and overnight voting.

The Texas House Democratic Caucus have yet to release the names of the three lawmakers who tested positive for COVID-19.
