0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

For the week of August 4th, Imad and I discuss the biggest news in Texas politics.

There is Wendy’s new explosive ad that kick started the official campaign season a bit early, Abbott’s response and how it all fits into the bigger picture of the narrative so far. Will it be enough to derail his campaign or can it help her chip away at his lead?

We also talk about Rick Perry’s presidential campaign soft launch at RedState this year and why he is still getting attacked from the right for his position on immigration.

Watch Wendy’s new ad and listen to the full podcast!
