Inside Texas Politics presents its first Fireworks Awards to members of both the Democratic and Republican parties, from city halls to the State Capitol.
Politicians who have impressed over the last year receive a Sparkler Award; those who fizzled get a Dud.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, State Sen. Wendy Davis and Gov. Rick Perry are among those on the list.
Presenting the Fireworks Awards with Inside Texas Politics host Jason Whitely are Gromer Jeffers, political writer with The Dallas Morning News; Bud Kennedy, columnist from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram; and Morning News Dallas City Hall reporter Rudolph Bush.
