Wendy Davis For Governor

It's great news that women's rights champion and Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis is running for Governor of Texas in 2014.  Davis, who gained national attention for her filibuster of a Texas law placing onerous restrictions on reproductive health services for women, will be in an uphill race, given the Rethuglican edge in voter registration.  However, Dems are hopeful that her run will galvanize enough Dems and bring them to the polls to make a difference in down-ballot races for legislature.  Given her tenacity and smarts, don't count her out by any means.  She's a fighter and a star who will help turn Texas purple as the State's demographics shift gradually toward the Dems.
