Normally on Wednesdays, Houston Matters brings your our weekly political roundup with analysis of national, state, and local political stories — with an eye for how it all might affect Houston and Texas. However, this week, we take a slightly different angle: we discuss the top political stories of 2017.

Our panel of political experts includes Jeremi Suri from the University of Texas, Jay Aiyer from Texas Southern University and co-host of Houston Public Media's Party Politics podcast, and Andrew Schneider, News 88.7's politics and government reporter.
