Capitol Inside

CAPITOL INSIDE celebrated our sweet 16th birthday on January 23, 2019 as the most unique and entertaining source for news and information on state politics and government in Texas. That's an amazing accomplishment considering the long odds we faced in a highly competitive market at the outset.

We've been honored by the praise we've received over the years from sources like Campaigns & Elections magazine, which showcased Capitol Inside in a feature story a month before our first birthday. And we've been extremely proud to have the lion's share of state legislators, statewide leaders, lobbyists, campaign consultants, state party officials, prominent activists, political journalists and others with a stake inside the Capitol beltway as loyal subscribers who want access to maximum information to keep their competitive edge. Our subscribers can be found at opposite ends of the political spectrum and all points in between. Republicans and Democrats appreciate our commitment to fairness and objectivity and political coverage that confirms the diehard independent status we've embraced since day one.

Capitol Inside has been a labor of love for us and a must-read publication for the people in Texas politics who want to excel at one of the roughest contact sports on the planet. Most of those who've subscribed have seen their power stock rise and soar in countless cases. Most of those who haven't subscribed are no longer around. We're saying that because we want your business - and because it's true. Ask anyone who's been around the Texas Capitol or campaign trail much during the past decade if you need a reference. You can sign up now or then through one of several options listed below.
