"Agreeing on aim. So wanted to get him with a little bit of tech vet school action with you just update you on where we are. I've gone through of heard lots of rumors about tech. There's a thing called, okay. The vet school needs her survive through three things we're into a whole show. We're new multiple shows on this. But the tech bet school needs to survive through three things. One is a national accreditation agency. That's on the national end on the state level. It's the state legislature as well as Texas higher education coordinating board. Now, the higher education coordinating board has one two three four five six seven eight nine members non-members with a higher education coordinating board in have been told look these folks excuse me. These folks have been to Texas Ainum games to the football games. They've been in the border regions booths. They've been in the chancellor's booths. And I cannot find any such thing guys. I'm just gonna tell you L A cannot find a time when it leased almost a quorum for these folks are more showed up and. I did some of that fact checking before the show now, I can tell you that I believe is things Raymund Paredes parodies. Raymund Paredes is the Commissioner of the board is essentially the chairman of the board. He did show up to a Texan him game September ten two thousand sixteen and then November four th two thousand seventeen at just two times. And both times he was in chancellor John sharps booth there at Texas AM. And that's the only time that I can find any of these folks involved with Texas am game. And I don't know if that comes as a disappointment to you're not, but it's pretty clear of good. That's necessary that we play. The Haggi war him really good song. In, you know, something that runs my ears about maniam as well. We don't care about UT. Your whole school song is about sawn beavers ears are horns off give me a break. He do own curb about that. Yeah. You do. Okay. So back to where we work. I cannot find that they're actively being wabi which is what they would be if they were in the chancellor sweet or the border region suites at tech sane him games. I can tell you, however based upon conversations I've had over the past couple of days. John Sharpe has an unprecedented. He's the chancellor texting neom unprecedented. Obsession that's the line. I think is good with opposing the vet school. It's unprecedented. For chancellor to go out on limbs sharp has gone on out on. There's the old Aggie rule of being too percenter. Just being with am two percent of the way that's looked down upon. That's ostracize their Texas him. John Sharp is definitely been and ninety eight percent or whenever it comes to a vet school in gone on limbs were he's not gone before. He will be in canyon believe next week to dedicate all the new buildings a hundred. A whole lot of money worth a buildings that are being used for from the puff fund there in canyon plan on writing about that soon give you more specifics. But other than the McDonald observatory. You can't find a better a bigger expenditure by Texas Ainum, and with regard to the Texas higher education coordinating board. I'm told that one person is being looked at to replace Rick Francis of Bob Duncan fame, the former chairman of the Texas Tech border regions. And that's an excuse me. If I get the first name wrong now, but I believe it's Arcilla cough, a cost a Kosta, none of DC fame, but of Texas fame, she was a graduate of Texas Ainum in a recipient of the board of directors certificates in from southern Methodist university southwest school of banking. She is on the Texas higher education coordinating board. This is who I'm told is being looked at is replacing Rick Francis. Which if you're in Texas Tech that's losing six. One way half dozen the other because you've got one firm vote. You would suspect on the higher education coordinating board for the vet school? But you're gonna take that one vote in put her up as a regent. Instead. I don't know how big a win that is at the end of the day. John Sharp is actively telling people I'm told that if the Texas higher education coordinating board approves the vet school than he's all in which says that he believes that he's got the higher education coordinating board tied down, which I can't tell by gin..

"Well, the reality is that when the maps are drawn when the state house and state Senate districts as well as the congressional districts are drawn by the legislature. They are drawn for partisan advantage at the beginning of a decade, your listeners know, how this works. They do the census every ten years they'll do that in twenty twenty count everybody and the way that it used to work is that the maps would be drawn where the districts, basically encircled communities have interests are a good example is Austin used to have its own congressman that was just a district that surrounded Austin and Austin would send a congressman. To Washington, but what eventually happened as politicians started to figure this out. They realized that instead of the voters picking the politicians the politicians could pick their voters. And so they started to draw these districts in such a way that they would be optimized partisan advantage there district that were there were district's that would be more Republican and districts that would be more solidly democratic, but what happened over the last decade, and this is exacerbated because of the huge just explosive growth that we have seen in Texas over the last ten years with twelve hundred people moving to the state roughly that many every single day, especially in places like Dallas Fort Worth and the Houston area in Harris County when you look at the growth that has happened there. The districts are different than neighborhoods are different people move people are born people die. And so the way I described that as the districts are degraded over the ten years, and what I mean is the partisan advantage is degraded, but what will happen? In twenty twenty one is lawmakers will look to shore that up now because of the way some of these communities are growing the way some of them are changing, it will be more difficult for those to be especially in those places. I mentioned in DFW in Houston. It'll be much more difficult for the lawmakers to draw this in such a way that they will only go Republicans Democrats are probably going to pick up some seats in that redistricting. Here's the big question in the election prior to the redistricting. How many seats can Democrats pick up in the next election in twenty twenty heading into the the the the redistricting cycle in twenty twenty one that will tell us a lot about how much leverage Democrats, we'll have going into that process in for the minority party. That's really the holy grail. And so I think one of the things that you might see happen in this legislative session is there will be proposals put forward by Republicans on issues like property taxes, for example. Where the Democrats might just say, no and vote. No on all of that stuff and say look at the Republicans are trying to push something that's not actually gonna cut your taxes. And so we're no on that. And then in the next election. They just, you know, in in the twenty election, they run on the fact that they oppose that stuff and by the way, nobody's property taxes went down and see if they can pick up more seats in the Texas house going into the twenty twenty one legislative session. Yeah. Well, we know the Scott Braddock is going to be following is next legislature, Scott bread. It's going to be following the vet school. I knew a lot of you are listening with new interests. It's crazy brenick how much this conversation comes up people who previously may not have even known how many seats there are in the Senate or in the house are greatly interested in Texas government. Now, we know that Scott Braddock will be on top of that in say that because I.

"Olten or data. You you need to have your interests heard by somebody who can be there full time. So maybe it's worth paying some commission and paint an apartment. Well, the fact is that the legislative process is not something that the average Joe or even you know city mayor or someone who's not interfacing with that process. All the time not something everybody's familiar with. And so there are folks who are expert in the process know what they're doing. No, the players in the process, and it's just like anything else, you wouldn't go. You wouldn't have an issue that's important to you. That would be in a courtroom, for example, and not hire an attorney to guide you through that process. The reason that a person hires a lobbyist is because they're expert in dealing with the process at and the players at the capitol and the way that it all, you know, plays out legislative session after legislative session. These are folks who were professionals, and like I think the fact that lobbyists get sort of a bad rap in mainstream medium mainstream media, it's sort of a it's sort of a media creation that all lobbyists are bad or something. It'd be like saying that all attorneys are. Right. I mean, there's there's some good ones, and there's some bad ones. And a lot of times, there's, you know, bad ones who kinda give the others a bad name. But book it it's just like any other profession. There's there's you know, folks, who are super professional just doing their jobs, and my experience, that's the vast majority of folks who are in the lobby. He runs report dot com. I was delighted to see yesterday. I always get people who get your emails who subscribe, your website that say, hey, you made the corner reports list every every day you put out a couple of lists. At least of things you need to read to be in the know their corn report dot com, and you put up my piece, Texas turned Amarillo, not purple in lead that into this segue to say that that's my big story from two thousand eighteen that there was such a democratic force. That came into the state in. I don't align with that platform. And I have a hard time aligning with the Republican platform. Sure because I don't make God in my own image. But that's in the monologue. You don't need to comment on that. But pretty independent is where I stand. But that's my big story in two thousand eighteen is that Texas said who are who are the competent rips? Let's reelect them in. Let's elect them by big double digit leads. If they are not if not proven to be capable then we're going to get rid of them in the state legislature. What your big story in two thousand eighteen Scott Braddock? I think it's pretty straightforward in twenty fourteen. You had the Republicans light just destroy the reportedly Democratic Party by twenty one points. I governor abbot the tenant governor, Patrick comptroller, the Commissioner everybody who was running as a Republican just destroyed the democrat who is running again. Them this time around not at all the case. You know, you had a lot of the folks I just mentioned almost lose their races at the top of the ticket better. A ROY comes within two point five three points of beating Ted Cruz. And of course, you did have Democrats pick up seats as you mentioned about twelve of them twelve of them. I should say in the Texas house and two of them in the Texas Senate, and so while the Republican leadership two years ago at this time was talking about things like a convention of states to rewrite the United States constitution, a Bill to tell people where they can go to the bathroom, a sanctuary cities ban in this state, and I put sanctuary cities. I'm doing air quotes because we didn't have any sanctuary cities, and we still don't and by the way that build and not in any way, create legal definition for a sanctuary city. Those are the kind of things that we're talking about leading into the last legislative session in twenty seventeen this time around they seem to be focused on more serious. Things things that folks actually care about those things including your property tax Bill and my property tax Bill and school funding school, finance and.

"And I've been keeping up with this where top conservative leaders obsessed that they should never ever ever spend any of that money. And now they're on track to spend roughly half. We'll we'll watch out unfolds. Maybe they won't spend that much. But that's what they're queuing it up for right now. Breaking news with Scott Braddock. Speaking of Abbott. Let's go into okay. So tell us give us the other side of the issue here folks would say, wait a minute. We're going to have lobbyists. We're gonna have our municipalities in our counties higher out lobbyists. Yeah. In Abbott coming down against lobbyist. Why do municipalities and counties have lobbyists in? What would be the governor's take against it? A variety of reasons that cities and counties would want to have representation at the Texas legislature. Win lawmakers are in session, and what does the lobbyists? Do. Let's start when a one. Well, look at the reason that somebody registers a lobbyist is transparency device. It's too. It's it set up such that, you will know who's representing who before the legislature. So if you have a lobbyist representing the city of Lubbock, for example, they have to register with the Texas ethics commission. It will say that there there'd be a public form, and you can go onto E C the ethics Commission's website. And you can search, you know, city of Lubbock and see which lobbyists may be representing the city and the. No, we're school or protects saying them were for Texas Tech. Look, the the various government out of these have various reasons why they would want to have representation, you know, in this case what governor Abbott is arguing is that the cities and counties do not want to have their revenue. Streams capped at his proposal is two point five percent, you know in a budget year. And he's saying that that the counties and cities want to raise your taxes and he wants to lower them. It's important to point out that he does not have proposal yet to lower your property taxes. Neither does governor Lieutenant governor Patrick where the speaker for that matter, the incoming speaker of Representative bond, and and so the governor says that it's not right? That cities would hire a lobbyist to come down to Austin and fight with him about how much your property taxes ought to be. But look I was talking with some folks who have represented. Various government entities over the years talking to folks this weekend, and the vast majority said they have never been sent to Austin with the express purpose of trying to raise anybody's taxes. That's just not the truth. And as I pointed out in a speech in Amarillo a couple of weeks ago. There is no proposal from any leader in Austin to cut anybody's property taxes. And until there is anyone who makes the claim that they are pushing to reduce your property taxes and Austin is simply being misleading. So this is a little bit of misdirection by the governor. And it's also worth noting that and by the way, this is pretty funny. This was posted on social media over the weekend. Especially interesting to note that the governor's office has a division that is staffed with payer funded lobbyists to represent Texas in Washington, the response to that from someone online was well, it's a good thing to have the various levels of government at odds with each other and to have each level of government have. It's you know has its own representation. So that they can do get out. We're all probably better off in freer as a result. But just not cities and counties. Well, that's what the governor's park. Yeah. Because in point out the vet school because you know, their interest groups in Amarillo who have monitor standing we're gonna get into this next segment, but who have an interest group Amarillo has in. They can't be interested in Amarillo because they are in Amarillo they had their own lobbyists. The city has another lobbyist at Texas Tech. Mallender standing has another lobbyists all in on this vet school thing. Because lobbyists have a way of making themselves heard. And if you don't have around than yarn heard in when you're dealing with the sort of maroon ties that Texas Tech is dealing with in the burnt orange ties that Texas Tech is dealing with. Then you need to have in. That's just with at school. You know, forget forget, the city of plain view or..

"Our attorney general Ken Paxton and other Republican attorneys general other Republican led states saying that the Affordable Care Act should be struck down Ken Paxton on Friday when the ruling came down. He said the ultimate and I'm paraphrasing. But he said the ultimate goal of this lawsuit is complete repeal. Of ObamaCare, and if that happens, then governor abbot of saying that they're going to try to get waivers from the federal government to and listen to this to allow insurers provide coverage up lower rates while ensuring that Texans with pre existing conditions. This is direct quote from Abbott while ensuring the Texans with pre existing conditions continue to have access to quality healthcare, unquote. So in other words, Republican leadership is in favor of the popular parts of the Affordable Care Act and against the unpopular parts, as you know, from growing up in the real world the unpopular things often with pay for the popular things. How in the world are we so okay, we're gonna do Harvey relief in this legislature? We're going to school finance. That's what we're told. Yes. And we're also going to put together a Texas insurance package. Well, it's not. If this is going to happen in this legislation coming special, how many spot possessions are wigging go into who knows the answer. I mean, it could be by the way the still has to go. We, you know, the the court that ruled on this in Fort Worth is just the trial court level. Then you have to go to the fifth circuit, you know, appeals court in New Orleans, and then you'd have to go to the United States bring court as all of that could take a year or more. You know, we we still have a long road to go here on this on this case. So it's actually kind of easy for Abbott to say this now, you know, because right now as we said earlier in the segment there is no practical effect from the ruling that came down on Friday, the Affordable Care Act is still in effect as this winds its way through the courts. But you're right. I mean, the things are starting to pile up Austin and serious issues. One thing that we didn't mention yet is property tax relief, which is what Dennis bond, and the speaker in waiting has said he's going to, you know, make that his priority along with Lieutenant governor. Dan, Patrick, along with governor abbot, they all seem to be on the same page about that school funding Harvey relief that you mentioned all of that can have a huge price tag. As we mentioned on the show previously. You have about twelve billion dollars or so is what's going to be in the rainy day fund or economic stabilization fund. When lawmakers gaveling in January and the top of budget writers have already set a floor as required to do by state law. They have to set a minimum amount for that rainy day fund. And they said it at about seven point five billion dollars, which means Jay they could be on-track after years and years of it being conservative orthodoxy to never spend almost any money from that rainy day fund. Now, they could be on track to spend roughly half of it. Oh, coming up in this legislature, very possible. Yes. Or holy cow. Spend half a date. Right. How long have you been keeping up with this?.

Yes to no happy say backup dailies. Gimme the real answer. Gotcha. Gotcha. Greenwich friends, engage in real talk. Yeah. Well, this has been real talked so far so brag let's get into folks like to listen in in talk about what what's going on down in the beltway Tillis, we're seeing a lot of hullaballoo right now, I continue to use her hullaballoo reference because we see where people listen to the show where they stream from and where they listen to podcasts. And I gotta say down in John sharps AM we got a pretty good audience. So I like to throw the hullaballoo for them. Sure. Hashtag vet skull Balu cannot cannot after a judge in Fort Worth struck down ObamaCare. Governor Abbott says Texas will prioritize. What are they going to prioritize coming up in the next legislature? Well, this had a lot of people today. Asking a question, you know, we started out with a very honest question. Here's another one where has the governor and Republican leadership in the state been on the issue so far so far. It's only been to you know, reject Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act now governor rabbit says the Texas will work to pass its own healthcare law. The place the Affordable Care Act if it is alternately struck down. We should back up a second and say exactly what happened as you mentioned a judge in Fort Worth struck down the ACA in its entirety based on the idea that because congress did away with the penalty for the individual mandate that the rest of the law cannot stand. And if you go back and look at his reasoning on this, the judge was saying that, you know, when the supreme court said that the bulk of ObamaCare could stand the justification was. And this was a chief Justice John Roberts who made the argument they had said. The supremes. It said that the Affordable Care Act it amounted to what it amounted to attacks which the the Congress's allowed to do or at least that part of the law was attacked. And so this judge is saying because that part is gone as part of the cat tax cut. You know, a package last year that none of the ACA stands. It's important to point out that this ruling has no immediate practical effect because there was no injunction ordered the law stands as it winds its way through the courts. This may take quite some time. I would imagine this to go all the way up to the United States Supreme court once again as this challenge unfolds..

"It listeners need to know. I'm told that around noon today's what a lead within the program around noon. A lot of the conversation. Here's vet school in. Let me clarify this again for listeners in for you. I think that there's a fair debate to be had about the vet school in the Nisa the necessity of another public institutes of higher education in Texas, providing of at school, albeit a large animal that school in Amarillo that is I think I think even Bob Dunkin would concede that that was a factor the largest factor in his housing for Texas Tech. It Big gets issue you. the grounds up here. Okay in. That's why bring this forward. I'm I'm not here pounding on the drum for the vet school, but just covering it like. Then you have to say the vet schools considerable factor in the region right now. Yes in all talk with four price about that coming up. But I think it is Morten Scott Radic that untold that it noon today ahead around noon. John short walked out of Dennis Vons office in a grin in now that might have been a political grin or gratifying grin or whatever. It might have been what what say you Scott Braddock on Dennis bond and Texas AM in what's become this huge issue here in west, Texas and Upper West Texas on the vet school or like, I'm not gonna speculate about John Schroder brand. It's a it's it's a it's a good question. I'm not saying that it's not. But, but I do know that John Sharp and Bonn and have been friends for a long time. And so I went on and and he. Had a conversation about him a potentially being attract to be that big of the house. I'm sure that that was a very positive conversation. I think that folks from all around the state need to be on guard about what the priorities are going to be of the Texas legislature. There you go to be on guard says Scott Braddock, and we'll hold it there. We're going to get in with our friend. Congressman Jody Ellington coming up. Ask him a couple of hard questions. But you say right where you are Arrington coming up right here on your other side state, right? Where you are is we get in with Arrington coming up in the bottom, Noni seconds for better weather..

"It's not clear, you know, there were chief organizing principle for years has been opposition to Joe Straus as speaker of that is what the financial funders of of empower types, including Tim done and the Wilkes brothers from Cisco Texas now that's been their main main objective of their main objective has been to get rid of Joe Straus, Strauss left on his own terms. And so now you have someone coming in who does have the backing of Strauss. Although we should say in fairness that did not appear that Joe Straus was trying to help up on and round up members for his candidacy. It looked like Strauss. I came on board after the the after the list of a hundred nine folks, then released read about the same time. So if so as far as where they're going to be on the bond candidacy, they have not really taken a strong position. In one way or another, and maybe they will in the in the near future. Yes. Scott Braddock with us here. We wanted to keep up the video or audio that runs his video on the computer here and other side studios. But U S question of Bonnin in Bonnin replied, I think Curtly would good a good edge to wish that you had consulted me or talk to me before he ran that piece. But people here that in its Bonnin taking on the press. Yes, there's a lot of concern about well on one hand, you got a God and Bonnin din, the spun who a lot of people think will be good formidable force to the Lieutenant governor. However, the Texas house speaker's role is to represent the chamber. Into consider bills within the chamber in how they moved through calendars and appropriations this that and the other. His response to you. I think demonstrated I don't overplay it. I think this is like fifteen percent bond like bonding can get really fired up. There are concerns that Bonnin could really lose his cool within the hundred forty day legislature. Would you make that there are some questions about chairman bonds temperaments? Yes, he he was a little Kurt with me. And that's not a problem. I can take it and I've known dentist for years. So like, you said that's Dennis bonded about fifteen or twenty percents. Maybe not even that, you know, he he can't get very fired up in the past. He was part of the speaker Straus team. And that's you know, as part of the team one of his jobs was to be the attack dog when it came to the Texas Senate, particularly when various pieces of tax legislation being debated between the two chambers. You know, look, I mean Democrats picked up seats in the Texas house in the Texas Senate in last week. Election, but Republicans maintained majorities in fairly comfortable majorities in both chambers. And so the reality is that it's not really, and this is always the case j Leeson when we get down to it when we get into the business of Texas since Republicans have been in charge. And by the way, it was also true. When Democrats ran both chambers of the Texas legislature, the real conflicts, the gin to be about the house versus the Senate, the Lieutenant governor versus the speaker, and you know, when those two don't agree on something a lot of times governor who would step in governor Perry was very strong in that role. Governor Abbott has not been as strong in that role as sort of refereeing the action between the two chambers. And like you've got to very strong willed people in Virginia governor, Patrick and potentially the speaker candidates Dennis Bonham, it'd be does actually take the chamber the sparks could definitely fly. We'll see you say if I've talked to people today who say this is a done deal is. Is it st- if or is it win? Well, it's about fifty seven days until they actually vote for speaker. I've been talking with some folks this afternoon about speakers races in the past. And for decades. This is the case for decades. No one has seen a speaker's race be declared over by so many people, you know, in November in early November. And so there is a ways to go here. The house members could could obviously changed their minds. But right now Dennis bond and is on track to be the next week or the house. I think that's fair who is who who were still candidates on the Republican side. Who do we have left? Well, Phil king dropped out. And for price dropped out. Travis Clark dropped out this afternoon..

"We got for you there. Speaking of Texas, Tech sports. So we'd trying to talk about the news views and issues of the region that matter. Our friends Scott Braddock, let me take a little side sidetrack here are prince Scott Braddock is not going to be with us cannot deliver Braddock on Texas today because he has kidney stone in a hope is just singular not plural. A kidney stone may be stones. And is there in a in a hospital all our best to Scott Braddock? But his segment last week was in flake, oh in so we're going to replay that for you coming up a Scott Braddock and then about thirty minutes from now you'll hear from. Lubbock west Texas, congressman Jody Errington will get into the things that matter to the listening audience, but this is where I want to begin the speaking of Texas Tech athletics. Folks, if I had been given a big been brew for every time, I've heard the name Mike Leach today in connection to Texas Tech and the potential ousting of. Potential to probable ousting of cliff Kingsbury. I wouldn't be behind this microphone. I'd be face down in a bar ditch somewhere not raving on with you. Here's what we know. Now. My best in the worst the weekend. And I'm going to discontinue into best going through Monday night. We are about an hour in two hours and ten minutes away from kickoff of Pat, Mahomes and. The LA Rams in. I'm going go ahead and just count that as my best of the weekend. The twins my twin boys. They're flag football team law. So I'm gonna go and say my best of the weekend is going to be the Kansas City. LA Rams game tonight. But the worst the weekend Baath for whatever that cluster was in Manhattan, Kansas in I think a lot of you would be listening with your own. Abol stripper wherever wherever your right now. You would agree that what happened in Manhattan Kansas against Kansas state on Saturday was the worst twenty six. Look, I get it. I I'm on the politics for cliff Kingsbury because we're clip took up in where we were at that time was an absolute cluster. Fifty yard Lon. Tobby Ma biggers Tom Tupper Bill. A big problem. I think UT university Texas Oklahoma university you win one of those two games with Alan Bowman edge quarterback. But I don't know what you say about what happened in Kansas Kansas state in Manhattan on Saturday. I consider myself to be a friend in hope that he would say the same a friend of Mike Leach, he's been on this program. I like Mike Leach a lot call me a liter call me whenever you may. I think he's a genius. And we've had other people on the program who said as much a Sam Gwynne. Come at Sam Gwynne if you will Sam win wrote empire the summer moon perfect pass, and is is a scholar an academic, Anna gentleman. But has a lot of good to say about Mike Leach? Now, he said what he said about his boss, quote, unquote. I get that whole argument. But I will tell you that I've heard Mike Leach is name continuously over the course of the day. Now, am I going to make this issue into a into a region gate issue? Now. Now. I don't think I will. But I am telling you that I hear Mike Leach is name more than I would've Sumed. I would have heard Mike Leach is name. For a potential replacement for cliff Kingsbury. Now, here's where we stand right now. If Kingsbury were off it would be about five million dollars twenty four and five million dollars in that doesn't include buying out his assistance, but with a base of about four million dollars, and then four point one million dollars in twenty twenty you buy out the difference in that's four million dollars for cliff Kingsbury, and I've been absolutely astonished over the course of the day. Former foes of Mike Leach, the Leech your crowd, and, you know, Minnesota pejorative against a lot of people have all of a sudden mellowed in. I think that tends to mellow whenever he's got his team in a position to be in the college football playoffs. And some are beginning to warm up to him. Now why? We've had a lot of conversation on this program about hotel. Hotel revenue taxes in what that kids. What that could mean? Now. Here's what we do know in this is based upon the Lubbock avalanche journal last weekend..

"Eddie says yes, they're coming. But where there are reports that HEB's coming to why would you move to the south plains mall, and how bad is traffic going to be at the south plains mall with an HEB there in can you can you imagine holiday traffic there. Next year really is an HEB at the south plains mall. I I don't know about it something else I've got my head on. And I'm willing to just throw this out in the monologue. To start off in. It's this. This Texas speaker of the house race to to pivot into. Politics for just a moment. Are prince Scott Braddock tweeted this morning, something that I'd heard as well and trying to get into the weeds of it for just a minute. There are more more problems emerging especially especially on west about thirty five. But within new New Democrats that were elected in again, the house Alexa, speaker hundred and fifty members of the house. And there was there were twelve democrat twelve New Democrats coming into the house, and that's a substantial number and they're beginning to have problems with whatever's happened with Dennis Bonnin being thrust forward dense bonds or Republican out of Angleton and kinda like paratroopers now, it's like go go go go. Everybody's in for Bonnin in non any a lot of people don't understand why this was arrived at so soon, not just Democrats, but lots of Republicans some of whom have put their name in with Bonner asking this. Vote is supposed to happen on January eighth caucus vote on December one don't let your eyes glaze over the real deal goes down on Decem on January eighth to elect a new speaker and wise Bon way out in front and the more. I look at it the more. I think maybe there is a maybe everybody needs to take a deep breath. Keep put their powder back on keep it dry, and let's take another look here. And there the reasons are all over the board. The there are people who have some real problems with. I've been told that this'll be a region gate reference. Daniel Hodge former Greg Abbott chief of staff who now has his own consulting firm who is by documents. We obtained is still under contract with John Sharp and tech saying him. Through November two thousand nineteen but we're still like paratroopers go go go go everybody in on this. But some people sitting back with their parachute same weight. I don't know if I want to jump into that yet. In especially if you're interested in a vet school, a you cannot quid pro quo underlaw, you can't promise somebody something. So, you know, four price was on the show on Monday state rep from Amarillo who went in for Dennis Bonnin in says that they discussed the vet school how that was a that was a legislative priority for price..

"It's a it's it's a it's a good question. I'm not saying that it's not. But, but I do know that John, Sharp and bond and have been friends for a long time. And so I went on and and he had a conversation about him a potentially being I'll try to be that big of the house. I'm sure that that was a very positive conversation. I think that folks from all around the state need to be on guard about what the. Priorities are going to be of the Texas legislature, considering this fact, Senate governor, the speaker if it is done spun and the governor all three of the governor speaker and Lieutenant governor would all be from the Houston area. They would all be basically from Houston, and that's not a partisan thing. It's not an ideological thing. It's just a question of what does that mean? For folks in Lubbock. What does that mean for folks in DFW, San Antonio, east, Texas, west, Texas, etc? It's it is a consideration. You know in the past. It's been the case that the Lieutenant governor, and the speaker, and the and the governor would all be from different regions of the state and not necessarily by design. But it it is a factor in the way that things are prioritized around here. You know, I'm told right now that. Drew Darby has withdrawn has sent word oaks of encouragement to din, the spun and from good to get clarity on that very reliable source. But here I think that what's important is that folks are learning for the first time that the speaker of the house, the Lieutenant governor the governor the big three could from the same region. Yeah. Yeah. Well, and look, you know, me I mean, Houston guy. But I think it's it's worth pointing that fact out, you know, in the past, you know, just in the last session. It was the case that the speaker and the governor Lieutenant governor would not all from the same city. You know, Joe Straus from San Antonio instead. So in in different parts of the state have had their chance at having the speaker's office be occupied by somebody from those parts of the state. And so may now may not all be big Houston game here. We'll see. Well, what might be my favorite contribution by you? Scott brenick editor of the corner report. It Scott Braddock on Twitter. This is this has been your right on top of it. We appreciate you chum. Then let us know what's going on at this very hour down there in in the capital. What keep it covered for you? Jay. Thank you know. Right.

"Lots of developing news throughout the weekend. And then into today again the week after the midterms win twelve house seats in a hundred and fifty member house switched over to Democrats lots of urgency throughout the weekend for price thought to be. A considerable for lack of a better word a significant figure in the Texas speaker of the house race withdraws on Sunday. And we've got four price in exclusive interview about half an hour worth of four price. They're out of Amarillo. And I think those of you who are listening west about thirty five especially north of I twenty west of thirty five will be interested to hear what four price has to say a candidate for price. Also, Scott Braddock of the corn report coming up here in about seven minutes from now, here's where we stand. Don't reiterate this because I get listeners who send me emails and ask me questions because they don't follow. What's going on in Texas? You've got a hundred and fifty member house, and you don't elect a speaker popularly. None of us cast a ballot for speaker. We may cast a ballot for someone who could become speaker. But that speaker is elected from within the house itself. And so as it stands today after last Tuesday, you have eighty three Republicans seventy three Democrats and today. Denis bonnin. Was had had a press conference. He's a Republican out of Angleton. In folks. Listen, I'm still on the fence. I right before the program. If you're listening live, we started a couple minutes late because I was on the phone with a very credible source who said that John Sharp was walking out a Dennis bonded office today. The who the presumably speaker of the house, Texas AM chancellor, John Sharp was walking out of dentist bonds office today about noon clock. He had a presser today at three o'clock that John Sharp. In. So there's lots of mixed you you'll hear for price. He'll he'll make an argument in something that we pre recorded about an hour and a half ago say that Dennis bond is completely open to vet school. Of course. No deals can be made. That's illegal. But his indication was that Bonnin would go with the house on it nod obstruct him as a matter of fact, help people who were advocating for the vet school so much to get into. But rather than me tell you about Bonnin, we're sitting here in two thousand eighteen how about you listen to Dennis Bonnin out of Angleton. This was his press conference today. We're gonna bring you that audio as cues up here. Here's Bonnin walking to the podium in a believe you or about. Out to hear shaken hands. Dennis bond. Here. It is. We're here to let you know, the speakers Rice's over in the Texas house is ready to go to work. I'm very proud. We're gonna release here in a moment. One hundred nine names of my colleagues that have signed on to support me to be speaker. Don't worry about that number one hundred nine though, all one hundred and forty nine under other members are going to be a part of this house whether their name is on the list today or not is unimportant. We're going to be the house. When the house stands together. It does great things in this Texas house is going to do great things. We stand ready to work with the governor. And of course, we want to work with our friends and partners in the Senate and the Lieutenant governor. So with that we will keep it brief this is simply the beginning. But I'm honored to have the members that are here with me today. This was done on incredibly short notice. And they're showing up means a lot, but we're excited to bring the house together to be unified and to do good work for the people of taxes. I'll take one or two questions, and then we're going to move on. This is Scott Braddock. I'm glad you would ask me that. You didn't ask me that before you printed that I said, I wouldn't. But I made it very clear. Hold on to clarify. What Braddock had just asked him. And you'll hear from Bradburn just moment this where we'll pick up with him bonding his been on this side or that side. Lots of contrasting reports. Whether or not Democrats would get committee chairs in Bonnin context swipe at Braddock their bonding kind of firebrand in..

"And you did have John's was who is from the Houston area. And also feel king from weather for these folks running for speaker who, you know, just in fairness, I don't know that they really have had a str-. Strategy so to speak, you know, in trying to become speaker other than say that they are in announced candidate and visit with the members of the house, which is something that you need to do. Because again, those are the people who will make this decision the members. But I'm not sure that you know, they've had a specific strategy to try to get this done in. This instance, it looks like members came together with a strategy. Although it's not clear exactly whether they really have as many members as they say, they do because they've not released a list, we were told that as many as forty members got together at this meeting last night to talk about who the speaker is going to be. But there has been no list of who those speakers are due or who those members are produced for us or anybody else. And so I think in the last twelve hours or so there's been a lot of internal talk among members of the house about whether this is something that is a real play for the speakership or something that's going to unravel. I can tell you. Without naming names on this that there are some senior members of the house who were misrepresented in their intentions. There's always a lot of misinformation that gets spread around among the membership and lobbyists in Austin when there is a power struggle like this. But some senior members were said to be defecting from one of the announced candidates, and that was simply not true. So what may be the consequence here j Leeson is that there may be this push to try to get this gentleman, Mr. bond and elected speaker of the house, that's sort of unfolding in front of our eyes. But what may happen is a backlash to that? We're other Republicans who maybe are not supportive of this move will get their act together and come up with a strategy to try to get the person that they wanna see elected in those would be either. Among those announced candidates that we mentioned or maybe somebody else. Okay. So we have Scott Braddock on this show. Because of his political dexterity that we can get into not just what's going on within the beltway. But what's going on other sides, Texas, and I'm gonna follow that with a couple of things. It was was it. Not the speaker pledge presented by Representative boroughs. Yes, sir. Okay in I'm not look. The audience is to wide at like, I know the listenership that we have on livestream in. Then what we have especially with the podcast in DFW in Houston. And I don't sit around at least not in recent months since the re the gates that we've gone after in the investigation. It's not mine to to sit behind this microphone and go after one member in particular, it is this member that put together the pledge now Bonnin has not signed that pledge bond in from the coasts in Texas has not signed that pledge. Now, that's on top of that what's problematic here in the wake of region gate, Scott Braddock, and Scott Braddock on Twitter is that I'm told. Leading up to this program. At least the last hour and a half before the program when we air five PM central standard time members telling him by members. I mean state representatives telling me that Bonnin is a hard line. No now, you say southeast in I see coast. But I think whenever you say southeast Jay. Jay, Jay, I think your state to say nowhere near Lubbock. Well, so it's out these Texas don't belabor that point. You know, what ten hours from Lubbock? Yeah. It's not the regionalists in me. That's coming out here. It is the side of. Shall we say the Aggie war him? That's coming out in me that Texas him has absolutely opposed to Texas Tech having of at school. Maroon highs in that state house, and it would make sense if I wanted to be speaker to say, there's no way that there'll be a vet school again leading up to the program members reaching out to me saying how in the world are we pledging support four Dennis Bonnin in he's against enhanced maybe bun and made it deal. Maybe a deal went down last night. Braddock? I don't know..
