For the full hour, we discuss the latest in political news with political science professors Dr. Elizabeth Simas from the University of Houston and Dr. Michael O. Adams from Texas Southern University.
Both guests weigh in on headlines related to the 2024 Presidential race, such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' criticism of former President Trump over his stance on LGBTQIA+ issues, whether any third-party candidates will have an impact in the election, and what we can expect for the first Republican Presidential debate next month.
Plus, Dr. Simas and Dr. Adams share their perspectives on the Houston mayoral race, whether U.S. Rep. Colin Allred poses a challenge to Senator Ted Cruz following his raising of 6.2 million dollars in the Texas Senate race, how campaigning has changed for candidates with the existence of social media and technology, and more.
