As the Republican candidates take up most of the campaign oxygen in the U.S. Senate race, former state lawmaker Paul Sadler becomes the favored Democrat. Why does he think he's got a chance to win? We'll ask him; he's our guest.

On Roundtable: Following the dollars, as Gov. Rick Perry's presidential campaign flamed out. And on Flashpoint, is Perry now politically wounded in Texas?

The battle cry of many Texans — especially conservatives — is "we need less government" — at least until the dogs bite. And that has Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy in a Rant.

It's a political point that's been raised before: The late civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican. PolitiFact Texas checks it out.

And, as always, our Sunday Funnies.

Panelists include Gromer Jeffers and Colleen McCain Nelson of The Dallas Morning News.
