From Houston losing its bid to host the 2020 Democratic National Convention, to reaction to Mayor Turner's interview regarding firefighter layoffs, to the last efforts at the Texas Legislature to address Gov. Greg Abbott’s emergency items, to Paul Manafort being sentenced to 3.5 more years in prison, Houston Matters breaks down the latest political stories with an eye for how they might affect our city and the Lone Star State.
