Thursday on The Chad Hasty Show political commentator and Republican strategist Matt Mackowiak joined the show to talk about the latest news in politics.

About the state of the GOP in Texas and the convention that was held in Dallas last weekend, Mackowiak said,

From my standpoint, there wasn't huge controversy. And so I think in a way I think the party is in pretty good shape right now in Texas, we're going to win all the statewide offices in November again.

Mackowiak and Hasty also talked about the recent controversy over transgender use of bathrooms in school, and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick's stance on the issue.
