Inside Texas Politics: What Was Abbott Thinking?

On this week's edition of WFAA-TV's Inside Texas Politics, talk turns to Gov. Greg Abbott's decision to offer some measure of support to conspiracy theorists who think a planned U.S. military exercise in several states is cover for an invasion.

On this week's edition of WFAA-TV's Inside Texas Politics, host Jason Whitely, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Bud Kennedy and Tribune Executive Editor Ross Ramsey talk about Gov. Greg Abbott and his odd-to-some decision to offer a measure of support to conspiracy theorists who worry that a large scale U.S. military exercise planned across seven states (including parts of Texas) is cover for an invasion.

Also: Ross talks about state Rep. Jonathan Stickland, who got tossed out of a committee hearing last week, and significant local elections coming up in North Texas and San Antonio; Jason talks to Texas Association of Business CEO Bill Hammond, who says state lawmakers are on the wrong side of the gay marriage issue; and Jason, Bud and Ross discuss the political dimension of former Gov. Rick Perry's close relationship with a former Navy SEAL.
