Texas Take


Sep 5, 2019

In the wake of shootings in El Paso and Odessa, Democrats across Texas demanded Gov. Greg Abbott call a special session on gun violence. But he was quick to say no and instead issue eight executive orders.

Meantime, Rep. Dan Crenshaw got into a social media fight with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez over lending his handgun to friends. And Ryan was once again on the pot beat at a big marijuana conference in Austin this weekend.

All that and more as we 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.
