On Wednesday’s show: As early voting approaches, candidates in the Houston mayoral runoff election picked up a slew of endorsements of this week. Between that upcoming runoff and yet another special session in the Texas Legislature, there's plenty to talk about in the world of politics. We dive into the latest in local, state, and national news in our weekly political roundup.

Also this hour: This month's installment of The Bigger Picture looks at the new documentary The Lady Bird Diaries, featuring recordings from the audio diaries of former First Lady Lady Bird Johnson. We consider her legacy and how the role of women in politics evolved through the 20th century.

And as Houstonians prepare to head out for the Thanksgiving holiday, we go over the rules of the road with DPS State Trooper Richard Standifer.
