Our daily digest is a mid-day update on the stories we’re following in Texas politics today. Here’s what we’re watching:

The dust may still be settling from the final gavel of the 84th Legislature, but we are already looking ahead to 2016. Former Governor Rick Perry is expected to announce his presidential ambitions at the Addison Airport outside of Dallas tomorrow. Follow Karina Kling (@KarinaKling) as she heads to Dallas. We’ll check in with her tonight from the spot where Perry is speaking, and talk about his campaign efforts so far.

Mitch Goulding (@MitchTWCN) is sitting down with the people behind Mothers and Sons, a play at the Zach Scott Theatre this month addressing same-sex marriage. With a looming Supreme Court decision that could alter the legal rights of same-sex couples forever, he’ll look into the changing perception of the LGBT community over the decades, and the effect that may have had in the last legislative session.

Finally — last night, we sat down with Rep. Jimmie Don Aycock, who announced Monday he is stepping down after nearly a decade in the Legislature. We talked about his time at the Capitol, and how he sees Texas politics shaping up in the future. Check out that conversation here.

Make sure to tune in to Capital Tonight at 7 and 11 for more on all of this. We’re joined tonight by Rep. Jason Isaac (R – TX House District 45) to talk about the flood recovery happening in his district and his signature water bill that passed in dramatic fashion this session. Plus the Quorum Report’s Harvey Kronberg will provide his perspective on all the week’s stories. Tune in on Time Warner Cable News in Austin and San Antonio.
