On 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, the focus is on elections.
With early voting wrapping up on Friday and Election Day on Nov. 4, it's up to voters now. Jason, Bud and Ross also talk about the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll that shows Democratic nominee Wendy Davis trailing her Republican opponent Greg Abbott. Other topics include Abbott and a question about interracial marriage, the effectiveness of the state's response to the Ebola virus and more.
Also: Jason interviews former President Jimmy Carter in Dallas, where the 90-year-old has been helping restore homes for Habitat For Humanity; an op-ed segment questions the intent of Texas' voter ID law; the notion that Republican budget cuts hindered the nation's response to Ebola is debated; and Jason talks to Scott Haywood of Move Texas Forward about why he thinks Texans should vote for Proposition 1, which is designed to shore up some of the state's shortfall in transportation funding.
