The campaigning is over, the votes are cast and the results are in, but plenty of unknowns remain over two of the biggest decisions voters made at the polls.

In Wednesday’s Capital Tonight, we spoke to Texas Water Development Board Chairman Carlos Rubinstein about the work that remains now that funding is lined up for the state’s water plan, and we looked at the campaign ahead for Democrat Celia Israel and Republican Mike VanDeWalle, the two candidates sent into a runoff election over House District 50.


Voting trends nationwide are raising concerns about the strength of the Tea Party, but the polls at home tell a different story. We sat down with James Henson of the Texas Politics Project for a look behind the numbers.


And we talked to Democratic candidate Maria Luisa Alvarado about her latest bid for lieutenant governor.
