No Fight Like a Family Feud

The country is polarized. Texas, its largest red state, is really polarized. But the unfolding spectacle here isn’t the product of some yawning chasm between red and blue but a bar brawl that’s broken out in the state’s Republican Party. The long knives are out over who killed school vouchers, who persecuted poor Ken Paxton, who’s selling out conservatives and who’s flirting with antisemitism. Bob Garrett is a long-time, keen observer of the political landscape. He’ll give his take on the questions we’re all asking.

About our speaker:

Bob Garrett is Austin bureau chief for The Dallas Morning News. He's covered state government for The News since 2002. Earlier, he was a statehouse reporter for three newspapers, including the Dallas Times Herald. A fifth-generation Texan, Bob covers Gov. Greg Abbott, the Texas House, the state budget, Child Protective Services and foster care. He has survived 12 biennial sessions of the Texas Legislature. Like the late Molly Ivins, he considers his love for the Lege “a harmless perversion on my part,” which he discusses “only with consenting adults.”
