Texas Tribune Executive Editor Ross Ramsey is a regular guest on WFAA-TV's Inside Texas Politics.

On this week's edition of WFAA-TV's Inside Texas Politics, I talked with host Jason Whitely about the early challenge to House Speaker Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, from freshman state Rep. Scott Turner, R-Frisco; the Texas GOP and Hispanics; last week's spat between gubernatorial campaigns over fundraising totals; Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst's suggestion that his re-election could be a victory lap; and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz's fade in the polls.

Also on the show: Interviews with U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Dallas, and his Tea Party challenger, Katrina Pierson, and the debate over a pregnant brain-dead woman in Fort Worth, kept on life-support against her family's wishes.
