Hutchison talks Galveston History on ‘The Daily Show’

Former Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison appeared on Comedy Central last night to promote her new book and chat with Jon Stewart about the current state of Congress and about Texas’ current leadership.

Hutchison, who was born in Galveston and grew up in La Marque, began her interview with an anecdote from her new book, Unflinching Courage: Pioneering Women Who Shaped Texas. Hutchison related the story of Jane Long, the Maryland woman sometimes called the “Mother of Texas”, who lived on the Bolivar Peninsula alone in 1820, after her husband was killed while attempting to seize land from Mexico with a private army.
