Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, Scott Braddock, editor of, joined the program to talk about the latest news from the state of Texas and the 87th Texas Legislature.

Braddock and Hasty discussed committee assignments, the buzz surrounding Texas secession, and the possibility of legalized sports betting becoming a reality in the state.

Braddock said,

The Lieutenant Governor, Dan Patrick, who has been staunchly opposed to some of these things like sports betting or increased gambling in Texas, during a Republican caucus meeting, I was told and confirmed this with several sources, that the Lieutenant Governor told Republican senators, that if a bill would result in a revenue increase for the state, he would not oppose it...That doesn't mean that he would push for it, or try to make it happen, but the fact that he might not be opposed would be certainly a different dynamic.
