On the Monday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Matt Mackowiak, GOP strategist and co-founder of MustReadTexas.com, spoke with Chad Hasty about the latest state and national news.

Hillary Clinton continues to be one of the major Democratic frontrunners for 2016. However, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has also been making news recently, and, according to Mackowiak, could pose to be a strong challenger for Clinton. He said that while Warren is not running in 2016 at the moment, she can appeal to the Democratic base much better than Clinton. Mackowiak also pointed out that Clinton's weak foreign polices as Secretary of State are still a big issue for not just Republicans, but her Democratic supporters as well.

"...I think that [Obama's] weak foreign policy and just sort of the unpredictability and danger that we face across the world is again, really, I think changing people's perception of her tenure as Secretary of State. It's very hard to look at her record and point to a very tangible, significant accomplishment. She can talk about how many miles she flew, she can talk about representing the United States, and those things are important. But they're  not sort of singular special accomplishments."

Mackowiak also talked about the ongoing border issues and the "striking contrast" between how President Obama is approaching the issue and how Texas Governor Rick Perry approaches it. He said that while Obama has been spending more time in Texas, he is staying away from the border itself. However, he added, Governor Perry has been down at the border and seen the crisis first-hand.
