Will Young People Show Up at the Polls?

Mailboxes and the airwaves will be flooded with political ads over the last two weeks of the general election, and much of that final push will be focused on likely voters. As Ben Philpott of KUT News and the Tribune reports, most young people just don't fall into that category.

An Interview With Gov. Rick Perry

On Friday, Gov. Rick Perry sat down with me for an interview co-presented by the Tribune and Austin's public broadcasting stations, KUT and KLRU. We talked about the controversy over the Emerging Technology Fund, the calendar he makes public and the one he doesn't, how he'd cut the shortfall, which federal stimulus money he likes, whether Texas is a sanctuary state, the limits of abstinence education and more.

An Interview With Bill White

On Friday, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill White sat down with me for an interview co-presented by the Tribune and Austin's public broadcasting stations, KUT and KLRU. We talked about whether the big bucks he's raised from appointees qualifies as "government for sale," how he'd cut the shortfall, how he feels about Barack Obama, the health care reform he'd prefer, those lawsuits against the feds and more.
