A lot continues to happen in Texas politics. We start off this week talking about Greg Abbott’s new border policies, one having positive effects and the other an insulting gimmick.

The portion that is having a positive effect was actually a plank in the Don Huffines campaign that Dade Phelan criticized at the time.

But that’s not the only thing Phelan is criticizing. He’s also leaping to the defense of the groomers at Disney while making fun of Dan Patrick, who is standing in the gap for Texas children and parents.

As Phelan drifts further left each month, it’s becoming more common for him to take these kinds of ludicrous positions.

Luckily, some in the Texas House are standing strong for GOP priorities—one of those being State Rep. Bryan Slaton. We wrap up this week’s episode with a conversation Texas Scorecard had with Bryan about an issue he has championed in the Legislature: the banning of Democrat chairmen.

We hope you enjoy this week’s episode.
