Our featured guest on Inside Texas Politics this week is A.C. Gonzalez, just named as Dallas city manager. His $400,000 salary has raised eyebrows... especially since his female predecessor earned almost $95,000 less.

Gonzales is quizzed about that and his plans to make changes in municipal government by host John McCaa and Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy.

We return to Austin for our new segment on Inside Texas Politics focusing on state issues. Ross Ramsey, executive editor and co-founder of The Texas Tribune, discusses the upcoming Texas governor's race between Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott and Democratic State Sen. Wendy Davis. Is this matchup overrated?

President Obama has been accused of plagiarizing his predecessor, George W. Bush.

We put the political headlines in perspective on Reporters Roundtable. McCaa, Kennedy and Ramsey discuss the future of embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; Attorney General Abbott's border security plan; and the March 4 primary, representing a battle for control of Texas between pro-business groups and the tea party.
