Inside Texas Politics: Ebola

This week's edition of WFAA-TV's Inside Texas Politics with host Jason Wheeler, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Bud Kennedy and Tribune Executive Editor Ross Ramsey is dominated by talk of the first appearance of the Ebola virus in the U.S.

This week's edition of WFAA-TV's Inside Texas Politics with host Jason Wheeler, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Bud Kennedy and Tribune Executive Editor Ross Ramsey is dominated by talk of the first appearance of the Ebola virus in the U.S. — at a Dallas hospital. Jason and Bud talk with U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Lewisville, and Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins about the response at the federal, state and local level.

Also: Ross on the governor's race, which seems close enough to keep an eye on; Jason, Bud and Ross look at last week's lieutenant governor and gubernatorial debates; how the appearance of the Ebola virus in Texas highlights Gov. Rick Perry's political strengths; and former president George W. Bush says his brother Jeb wants to be president — but with his own son George P. Bush distancing himself, he may have to win the Thanksgiving table first.
