It's time again for our weekly political roundup and analysis of national, state and local political stories — with an eye toward how they might affect Houston and Texas.

Joining us for this week’s discussion are: Jay Aiyer, of Texas Southern University and co-host of the Party Politics podcast from Houston Public Media; Elizabeth Simas from the University of Houston; and Andrew Schneider, politics and government reporter for News 88.7
