With the 2012 election over, what did Texas voters tell us? Gilberto Hinojosa, the chair of the state's Democratic Party, and his Republican counterpart Steve Munisteri are here for analysis.

Voters elect Ted Cruz to the U.S. Senate, but on today's Rant, Fort Worth Star Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy says Republicans still have a Hispanic problem in Texas.

The "lame duck" session of Congress is about to get under way. Can its members steer us clear of the impending 'fiscal cliff" of tax increases and spending cuts? Rep. Michael Burgess (R-District 26) shares his point of view.

Why did President Obama win? And why did Mitt Romney lose? Our Flashpoint debate features Mark Davis of 660 AM The Answer on the right, and author and producer Katie Sherrod on the left.

And what is George P. Bush up to as he sticks his toe in the water to run for office in Texas? That's one of the topics on this week's Roundtable segment with Christy Hoppe, Austin bureau chief of The Dallas Morning News.

"Inside Texas Politics" host Brad Watson is joined by Gromer Jeffers, political writer for The News.
