Video: Cruz, Castros on Sunday Shows
The blazing stars of Texas politics at the moment, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and the Castro brothers, once again did a turn on the Sunday talk shows.
On this morning's edition of Meet the Press, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, debated his Democratic colleague from New York, Chuck Schumer, on President Obama's push for gun control. In particular, Cruz questioned whether the so-called "gun show loophole" for background checks exists.
On Face the Nation, U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-San Antonio, and his twin brother, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, talked about the possibility of Texas' much-speculated-about shift from red to purple.
