In this episode of Observer Radio, our staff discusses the big Republican victory and what it means for the upcoming legislative session.

Also, Observer editor Dave Mann argues that the abortion filibuster that catapulted Davis to stardom may have forced Texas Democrats to adopt a risky strategy that contributed to a complete blow-up on election night.
