October 4, 2013 | Texas Political Overview

  • Aired: 10/04/2013
  • 26:46
  • Rating: NR
This has been an amazing week in Texas politics. A minority of the United States House of Representatives led by a Texas Senator shut down the federal government. Democrats are actually excited over a candidate for governor. Her running mate may well be a San Antonian. A conservative San Antonio city councilwoman has declared she will take on an incumbent state senator who has Tea Party backing.
