Texas State Democrats broke into song Tuesday during a Washington, DC, press conference upon fleeing state law enforcement to block state election integrity efforts.
The members sang, “We Shall Overcome,” a Christian gospel song originally attributed to Charles Albert Tindley that was first published in 1901.
Shortly after the choral response, Texas State Rep. Gene Wu (D), one of the fleeing lawmakers, tweeted a photo of his “first meal as a fugitive.”

“Now I have an idea what AG Ken Paxton must feel like every day… it’s not bad. No wonder he keeps committing more crimes,” Wu said, calling Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton a fugitive.
The antics from the Democrats come as the Texas House voted Tuesday to have state troopers arrest the fleeing Democrat lawmakers.
