This week on Inside Texas Politics –
A question a lot of people are asking in Washington, D.C. is what comes after the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump?
National Republicans are targeting five Democratic congressional seats in Texas next year. These are the five seats: Lizzie Fletcher in Houston; Colin Allred in Dallas; Vicente Gonzalez from McAllen; Henry Cuellar in Laredo; and Filemon Vela from Brownsville. The GOP is really going after seats along the Texas-Mexico border. Donald Trump won counties there during the 2020 November election. But isn’t that area still solidly blue? What are the GOP’s chances of winning these seats?
The superintendent of Richardson Independent School District (ISD), Dr. Jeannie Stone, tweeted in the middle of the night. At 3:48 a.m., she wrote that schools have been open for 100 days, but Texas teachers cannot yet get the COVID-19 vaccine. She’s right – 27 states have made teachers eligible, but not Texas. This issue is frustrating school leaders like her across the state. Richardson ISD is made up of 38,000 students in northeast Dallas County.
