On this week's edition of WFAA-TV's Inside Texas Politics, I talked with host Jason Whitely about last week's brouhaha over discrepancies in Wendy Davis' biography as the governor's race heats up early; Gov. Rick Perry's announcement — a surprise to some — that he's open to the decriminalization of marijuana laws; the impact of endorsements on political races; and the notion held by some pundits that this year's wide-open primary season is boring, or "irrelevant."

Also on the show: Interviews with U.S. Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Dallas, and his opponent in the Democratic primary, Fort Worth attorney Tom Sanchez
