On Friday’s show: Former Republican candidate for Harris County Judge, Alexandra del Moral Mealer, announced she will formally contest the results of the November election. We learn why she’s made this announcement now, two months after she conceded the election to incumbent Judge Lina Hidalgo.

And we learn more about Pres. Biden's upcoming visit to the border.

Also this hour: We close out our series on the year ahead in Houston life with News 88.7's Andrew Schneider discussing what the year may have in store in state and local government.

Then, two years after the Capitol insurrection, we discuss what's happened to Houston-area participants since and contemplate how we can avoid a repeat of the violence there after the next presidential election.

And we break down The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week.
