On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: The Texas GOP is holding fast to its decision to hold an in-person state convention in Houston next week, but convention speakers will give their addresses by video. As pressure mounts for the Texas Republican Party to move its convention entirely online due to COVID-19 health concerns, we learn the latest from News 88.7’s Andrew Schneider.

Also this hour: We discuss the latest news and the response to the COVID-19 pandemic in our weekly political roundup.

Then, we find out how the Houston Food Bank is handling increased demand for food assistance amid the economic downtown.

And writer and former Houstonian Suzanne Finstad talks about her updated biography of the late actress Natalie Wood.
