Political Roundup: Ryan Leaving, And Zuckerberg Testifies

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 when we discuss national, state, and local political stories — with an eye for how they might affect Houston and Texas.

This week, our experts discuss House Speaker Paul Ryan’s decision not to seek re-election, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony before Congress, the Trump administration’s response to chemical weapons use by Syria, and Texas National Guard troops deploying to the border.

Our panel of political experts this week includes David Branham, professor of political science at the University of Houston-Downtown, and Nancy Sims, political analyst at Pierpont Communications and a lecturer at the University of Houston.
