On this week's edition of WFAA-TV's Inside Texas Politics, I talked with host Jason Whitely and Fort Worth Star-Telegram reporter Bud Kennedy about Ted Nugent's appearance alongside Greg Abbott on the gubernatorial campaign trail (an event we live-streamed and wrote about here, here, and here) and about new revelations in the lieutenant governor's race, with Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson hiring a private investigator to find a then-undocumented immigrant who worked in state Sen. Dan Patrick's restaurant years ago.

Also: State Sen. John Carona, a Dallas Republican in a heated reelection primary, talks with Whitely and Kennedy about the contest (his opponent, Donald Huffines, declined an invitation to appear); Whitely talks to Phillip Jones, CEO of the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau, about efforts to bring the 2016 Republican National Convention to Dallas; and I talk to Whitely about how the Tribune prevents donors and sponsors from influencing the content of the news.
