Texas Take


Dec 7, 2018

The nation paused this week to pay tribute to former President George Herbert Walker Bush, who was laid to rest at his presidential library on the campus at Texas A&M University in College Station. 
Meantime, the Republican Party of Texas was working overtime to prove the organization is inclusive while some among their ranks work to reject a Muslim official and one activist proudly calls himself a "White Nationalist." Chairman James Dickey says that kind of racism is not welcome at all in today's Texas GOP.
And Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller came out in support of hemp production, but said "potheads" shouldn't get too excited because, in his estimation, it's not a slippery slope to marijuana legalization. 
Go behind the headlines for a look at what's really going on at the Texas Capitol and in Washington with the state's #1 political podcast: The Texas Take. Join the conversation featuring Scott Braddock, editor of The Quorum Report, Texas Public Radio Capitol reporter Ryan Poppe, and Chronicle political writer Jeremy Wallace.
