The retired Republican also offers some advice to her successor, Ted Cruz.

MY VOICE, MY OPINION

Chris Krok from WBAP NewsTalk 820 offers his views about free breakfast for underprivileged children. Are public schools creating a new culture of dependency?

FLASHPOINT

We're digging into the core of redistricting. That's what Texas lawmakers are debating during the special session now under way in Austin. At issue is minority influence, specifically the Hispanic vote. Are their voices getting edged out by gerrymandered districts? Former State Rep. Domingo Garcia on the left and Mark Davis of 660 AM The Answer on the right debate the issue.

REPORTER ROUNDTABLE

Texas Republicans are hiring staff and opening offices, hoping to recruit more minority candidates. They are also going after minority voters. Will the GOP have success? And do Democrats have anything to worry about? Dallas Morning News political writer Gromer Jeffers and Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy join Inside Texas Politics host Jason Whitely to break down this key topic.
