FULL TITLE: Wendy Davis reports big donations from Planned Parenthood allies, Greg Abbott mines big-dollar millionaires

Democrat Wendy Davis collected $100,000 in the last month from Austin Planned Parenthood board member Aimee Boone and $100,000 from Emily’s List, a political committee that supports Democratic women who back abortion rights. Other big donors during the most recent reporting period included investor Rani Clasquin of Austin, $50,000; League City trial lawyer Ronald Krist, $50,000; and eight contributions of $25,000, including from Cecilia Boone and Suzanne Bartolucci. In addition, her most recent report shows that Planned Parenthood’s political committee spent $20,000 on behalf of a poll to gauge Davis’ standing in the race for the Democratic nomination for governor in March.

Davis reported raising $2.85 million in the latest period, between Jan. 24 and Feb. 22. She has $11 million on hand. Republican challenger Greg Abbott raised $2.5 million during the same period and has nearly $30 million in his campaign account.

Good. Given how bad Davis’ campaign has been, its the same as them throwing their money into the furnace.

Now, will anyone hammer home the truth about Margaret Sanger's core beliefs concerning racism and eugenics?

She has a fundraiser in Georgetown, DC, tomorrow. I was wondering who would give her money and why. She must be a single issue pol.

It is a shame that such a disreputable character can amass millions of dollars of support from the evil doers in this state.

By no means was Margaret Sanger a racist.

She was just working for a “woman’s right to choose”....forget all that pesky detail how she believed in implementing the best way to ensure that the black race does thrive and grow.

I’m worried that her campaign is so weak she may not pull in the big national dollars to her sinkhole. That was going to be her value to our side.

And now that Bill Clinton has hooked up with that Kentucky cutie, Abortion Barbie may be left standing alone on the campaign trail.

Additionally, Robert “Sheets” Byrd, RIP (not really), wasn’t a grand kleagle of the KKK - he was a Senate Constitutional Expert, as so eloquently and obliviously described by his Democrat Party peers in the Senate.

A fine upstanding man who could “only be elected in WV if he was part of the KKK?” per Bill Clinton - all you hicks in WV are KKK racists, according to Slick.

Maybe its time for states to tax abortions if we can’t outlaw them.

$500 tax for the first one.

$1000 for the second.

$2000 for the third.

Interesting since apparently most of the aborted babies are back and if they were’t aborted they’d most likely end up voting rat.

They’re aborting their own base.

Is there a list somewhere of ALL her donors? And is there a list of donors to Emily’s List and Annie’s List? I can’t seem to search up these things anymore.

She already has $12 million. She also has the ear of the Hollywood Left, who don't use money the same way. Also, Abbott will STILL have to get his message out, he doesn't need to keep pace. He does need to be visible.

You are right about their aborting their own base. That, IMO, is why they are pushing for amnesty. Major source of Democrat voters.
