Today, we speak with political science professor Dr. Bob Stein from Rice University to discuss current and recent events in politics.

Dr. Stein shares his thoughts on the recent expulsion and reinstatement of Tennessee lawmakers Rep. Justin J. Pearson and Rep. Justin Jones and the ethics of who has the right to remove a public official from office.

Dr. Stein also shares his thoughts on the candidates in the 2024 Presidential race. Will former President Trump earn the nomination from the Republican Party despite his recent legal troubles?

Plus, he weighs in on the race for Mayor of Houston as he shares his predictions for which candidate has the advantage for the upcoming election.
