    Jan 26, 2017 | The Republic

    President Donald Trump's vow to accelerate construction of a "contiguous, physical wall" along the Mexican border is slamming into a Washington reality - who's going to pay for it and how?

    There are no major statewide offices on the Texas ballot, and Republican Donald Trump is expected to win a fiercely conservative state that hasn't backed a Democrat since Jimmy Carter in 1976.
