The AIDS epidemic has killed 35 million people. 1.2 million Americans are living with it right now, and 50,000 are infected each year in this country. The best hope for ending this disease is a vaccine, and the search for that vaccine is going on here in San Antonio at the Texas Biomedical Research Institute. Their AIDS research program received $23 million in funding - the largest in the organizations history - to develop  a vaccine that would prevent HIV infections from the National Institutes of Health.

Day two of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland tonight and if you want to see the 155 Texas delegates you are going to have to squint. The solidly red state doesn't get courted like the states on the fence, so it is to the nosebleeds with them. 

What influence will Texas have at the convention, after a Texan-filled primary that played not We Are the Champions, but Another One Bites the Dust.

Guest:

Ross Ramsey, executive editor of the Texas Tribune
