On this week's edition of WFAA-TV's Inside Texas Politics with host Jason Whitely, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Bud Kennedy and Tribune Executive Editor Ross Ramsey, talk turns to a widely shared video in which a Florida congressman calls Texas a "crazy state." Ross admits there may be some truth to it; Bud says people will pay attention if CEOs of large corporations start saying it.

Bill McRaven on campus carry and in-state tuition for undocumented students; moving the events fund from the comptroller to the governor's office; GOP presidential hopefuls expressing outrage at former Gov.
