Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, political analyst and Washington Times columnist Matt Mackowiak joined Chad to talk about the latest news and politics from Washington and Austin, including who may be competing in future races for Governor of Texas, as well as the Republican tax reform plan.

While speaking about possible candidates for the Texas governor race, both in the next election, as well as future elections, Mackowiak said,

I actually think that the next Democratic governor of Texas, whenever that is, you know ten, twenty, fifty years from now, is likely to be a moderate. It's going to have to be someone that can win some Republican votes, and win Independents, and still hold Democrats. But there's always a challenge with that kind of profile, of raising money, because you obviously have to get through a Democratic primary.
