The Ninth Inning of Covid?

The Stages of Political Grief

Republicans are very slowly coming to grips with President Trump's loss to President-Elect Joe Biden while Texas Democrats are grieving the fact they weren't able to make much progress at all after a much-hyped campaign season. But the GOP takes some solace in Trump's ongoing legal challenges while Democrats here can take pride in an ever-growing Blue Spine of Texas as first reported by Jeremy.

The Stages of Political Grief

Texas has spoken — what now?

As the vote counting battle rages on in the battleground states, the national election returns leave us with more questions than answers, especially in the presidential contest. But, Texas has spoken and voters have delivered some answers — President Trump took Texas by a big-enough margin and the GOP remains in control of all statewide offices and both houses of the legislature. Scott Braddock of The Quorum Report hosts this morning-after discussion with Houston Chronicle staffers: political writer Jeremy Wallace, Managing Editor for Content Maria Reeve, Editor of Opinion Lisa Falkenberg and editorial writer Luis Carrasco.

Enough Already! It's Election Day. Go Vote.

The Quiet Before the Storm? No, Not Exactly

Republicans and Democrats alike worked it hard over the weekend trying to get their voters to the polls for the final push to Election Day. Plus, a lawsuit is playing out over drive-through voting in Harris County and the Texas GOP Chairman is yelling conspiracy theories through an InfoWars bullhorn down in The Valley. Yup.

The Quiet Before the Storm? No, Not Exactly

The Final Push Through The Weekend

The Final Push Through The Weekend

Closing Arguments

Democrats want you to think Republicans are corrupt crooks who will take away your health care and Republicans want you to think Democrats will defund the police and let crooks run wild in the streets. We must be closing in on the end of the campaign. That plus Jeremy has a rundown of where exactly the Texas money is flowing from to both President Trump and Joe Biden.

Managing Expectations

After saying for months that President Trump will perform better in Texas this year than he did in 2016, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick this week admitted the race will be much closer than he had anticipated. Plus, Houston Chronicle Opinion Writer Erica Grieder argues Sen. John Cornyn and MJ Hegar's race is coming down to whether voters give a pass to the GOP incumbent. Erica joins us with her take on that and more.

Kamala is Coming

Turned Out for What?

There's record-shattering turnout across Texas as the final presidential debate is in the books. We'll break it all down. Plus, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick makes his Showtime debut, we think, and the tidal wave of political ads are causing some fatigue among Texas voters.
