PHOTO CAPTION : Wearing red bandannas sent to them by "personal messenger" from country singer Willie Nelson, four Texas House Democrats walk out of their hotel in Ardmore, Okla., late Wednesday. From left are Reps. Barry Telford of De Kalb, Patrick Rose of Dripping Springs, Jim McReynolds of Lufkin and Mark Homer of Paris. McReynolds held up a note from Nelson that said, "Way to go ... stand your ground." Nelson also sent T-shirts and eight bottles of whiskey to the Democrats, who are trying to thwart a Republican redistricting plan.
