Texas AG and minority leaders working on redistricting compromise

The Texas Attorney General and lawyers for minority groups are trying to hammer out a settlement on how to draw the state's political maps.

Minority groups want maps that reflect the increase in minorities living in Texas.

Republican lawmakers say they drew maps to benefit their political party, not to discriminate against minorities.

A federal court in San Antonio is trying to draw temporary maps so primary elections can take place in April.
