Friday already, in a busy week for Texas politics. As you may have heard, the Texas Republican Convention is going on – plenty to talk about there. Time for a recap of the week with Texas Tribune managing editor, Ayan Mittra.
Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick called the Obama Administration’s guidelines for transgender bathroom access a “come and take it” moment. Speaking of which – has secession come up yet?
“That’s always going to be a part of the talk, and this week, while the Republicans are having their convention, that’s certainly going to be a topic of discussion as they discuss their platform,” Mittra says. “I don’t know how serious they’ll take it on the platform debate.”
What you’ll hear in this interview:
– Looking ahead at the school finance ruling
– Reactions to Obama’s transgender bathroom guidelines
– A Texan on the Supreme Court? Maybe
