Party Politics 77: The Hottest Statewide Race Nobody Is Talking About!

The race for Texas Attorney General is getting closer and the impact could be massive

The race for Texas Attorney General between incumbent Ken Paxton and his Democratic Challenger Justin Nelson is heating up. With Paxton under the cloud of a criminal indictment and a series of controversial court filings challenging Obamacare and supporting the internment of immigrant children, a normally sleepy race for AG has become increasingly contentious.
