This is the headline over an above-the-fold story in the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram this morning.



The Texas Democratic Party warned Thursday that election night caucuses scheduled for Tuesday could be delayed or disrupted after aides to Hillary Rodham Clinton threatened to sue over the party's complicated delegate selection process.

In a letter sent out late Thursday to both the Clinton and Barack Obama campaigns, Texas Democratic Party lawyer Chad Dunn warned a lawsuit could ruin the Democrats' effort to re-energize voters just as they are turning out in record numbers.


The Clinton campaign denies this up and down and the stories doesn't make clear why the state party was so convinced that the Clintons intended to file a suit. Nevertheless, watch for the headline alone to generate some unfavorable news coverage in TX today.
