Political Roundup: Government Reopens, And Special Counsel Interviews Sessions

Our political experts discuss the latest national, state, and local political stories with an eye for how they might affect Houston and Texas.

It’s time again for the Houston Matters weekly political roundup with analysis of national, state, and local political stories with an eye to how it all might affect Houston and Texas.

This week, we discuss topics including Pres. Trump signing a funding bill to reopen the government, investigators for special counsel Robert Mueller interviewing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and the revelation that members of the President’s now dissolved voting commission asked Texas to turn over data that would have identified Hispanic voters in the state.

This week, our panel of political experts includes Jon Taylor, political science professor at the University of St. Thomas, and David Branham, professor of political science at the University of Houston-Downtown.
