Texas and the Presidential Election - A Voters' Voice Special

Dallas, TX – It's been an exciting election week as Presidential candidates competed for Super Tuesday votes. Now they're headed to Texas to win the support of voters in our delegate- rich state.

I'm KERA's Shelley Kofler. During the next half hour we'll bring you a Voter's Voice Special- Texas and the Presidential Election.

With me in the studio today are Cal Jillson, a professor of political science at Southern Methodist University, and Gromer Jeffers , a Dallas Morning News Reporter who has covered the candidates on the campaign trail.

We'll be talking about the impact Texans will have on the selection of nominees and what it takes to win in this state.

We begin with the voters: what they're saying and what what key supporters in Texas are doing.
