It’s a busy week in politics! To fit it all in this evening, we will have two editions of Capital Tonight.

Presidential Primary

Presidential candidate Ron Paul is in Austin tonight for a town hall meeting. During our 6 p.m. show, YNN’s Sebastian Robertson will be live with Paul supporters from the University of Texas. This is Paul’s second stop in a three city swing through the Lone Star State. The Congressman is also attending a private fundraising lunch here in Austin.

Before the town hall, Capital Tonight’s Paul Brown will have a one-on-one sit down interview with Paul. We will talk to him about the status of his presidential run, his thoughts on Mitt Romney and the reasons he is still in the race. That entire interview will air during our special Capital Tonight encore at 10 p.m.

Senate Race

With no real presidential primary competition here in Texas, the Senate race is taking center stage. Tonight, Capital Tonight’s Karina Kling explores the influx of television ads and the negative tactics some candidates are taking.

Meanwhile, Senate candidate and former ESPN analyst Craig James will be in our studio for an interview. He talks to our Paul Brown about the state of his campaign, the amount of money being spent on television ads and why he’s chosen to stay out of the mudslinging.

Capital Commentators

As always, our Capital Commentators will join us in the studio to offer their insight. Tonight, we’ll be talking about Gov. Rick Perry’s decision to endorse Mitt Romney, the demise of Newt Gingrich’s campaign and the likelihood of a runoff in the Senate race.
