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 last week's University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll and Greg Abbott's widened lead over Wendy Davis in the governor's race; Gov. Rick Perry's endorsements this primary season — or rather, the lack of them, and why that might be; the muted response so far from GOP candidates following last week's gay marriage ruling in a San Antonio federal court; why Democratic candidate for Senate Kesha Rogers — who campaigns on impeaching President Obama — is running ahead of the pack in our recent poll; and North Texas auto dealer Don Huffines' lack of personal appearances and press availability in his race against incumbent state Sen. John Carona, R-Dallas.

Also: GOP and Democratic political consultants Matt Mackowiak and Jason Stanford discussed the lieutenant governor's race, the continuing Abbott/Ted Nugent storyline; the three-way race on the GOP side to fill attorney general candidate Dan Branch's HD-108 seat in the Dallas/Park Cities area; Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's veto of the "religious freedom bill"; Dallas being one of eight finalists to host the 2016 Republican National Convention; and lieutenant governor candidate Dan Patrick's tweet heard 'round the world.
