Adding Up The Cost of the Democratic Walkout

Eleven Texas Senate Democrats remain in New Mexico after breaking quorum 2 days ago.

But, who is footing the bill as these lawmakers avoid a redistricting fight? Leticia Van De Putte, Senator of San Antonio, said they were paying for their own hotel rooms which cost close to $160 a night.

By law the senators do have the option to use their campaign office holder account, however, according to Van De Putte, if they do use their campaign accounts, their spending will be a matter of public record.
