On this episode of Party Politics: Texas Edition, cohosts Jay Aiyer and Brandon Rottinghaus bring you these hot topics in Texas political news:

  • Joaquín Castro won’t seek Ted Cruz’s Senate seat, clearing the way for Beto O’Rourke.
  • RIP Franchise Tax (i.e., to a major source of funding for Texas education).
  • The Texas redistricting trial starts.
  • Anti-Israel = Anti-Texas, according to Governor Greg Abbott.

Then the guys dig into the “Sanctuary Cities” bill and the fact that it cleared the House: What happens now? What are the political implications? Is this the spark that will unleash the Hispanic voter bomb? By the way, don't forget to check out our national episodes of Party Politics, too!

Party Politics is produced by Dacia Clay, Edel Howlin and Laura Lucas. Our audio engineer is Todd Hulslander.
