In the primary for Dallas County's only Democratic congressional district, incumbent Eddie Bernice Johnson faces a challenge from State Rep. Barbara Mallory Caraway and attorney Taj Clayton. But only Clayton accepted an invitation to appear on Inside Texas Politics this week.

On Flashpoint, how much of a campaign factor is President Obama coming out in support of gay marriage? Mark Davis and Katie Sherrod debate the issue.

The rhetoric is revving up in the Democratic primary race for the new congressional district spanning Dallas and Tarrant counties regarding the Arlington General Motors assembly plant and Fort Worth-based American Airlines. And that has Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy in a Rant.

And on Roundtable, the Democratic primary in the new North Texas congressional district turns nasty. Christy Hoppe, Austin Bureau chief of The Dallas Morning News and News political writer Gromer Jeffers review the hottest topics with host Brad Watson.
