May 11, 2012

A public battle between two Texas Senators doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon.

State Senator Dan Patrick, R-Houston, and state Sen. John Carona, R-Dallas had their heated e-mail exchange leaked to the media earlier this week. The correspondence, obtained and published by the political news website, the Quorum Report, showed Patrick accusing Carona of spreading rumors that Patrick and his wife were splitting after decades of marriage.

On Thursday, KUT's political reporting partner The Texas Tribune, had Patrick in for its TribLive conversation. Tribune boss-man Evan Smith lead off the discussion by asking Patrick how his week had been.

Watch Patrick's reaction below.
