In this episode of Observer Radio, we catch up with Dan Patrick and Ken Paxton who are doing…well, not much of anything actually—and that’s by design! Forrest Wilder explains the political advantages of the non-campaign.

John Wright of Lonestar Q joins us to discuss the story of Connie Wilson. A recent transplant from California, Wilson was denied a driver’s license by the Department of Public Safety because she took her wife’s name in a same-sex marriage.
