HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- With midterm elections, plus a big gubernatorial contest in the Lone Star State this year, ABC13 Houston is launching a new political program on our live 24/7 streaming channel called "This Week In Texas."
Each episode will focus on Texas politics and features newsmakers, timely issues, a rotating panel of political analysts and anchor Tom Abrahams as the host and moderator.
