Democrats are publicly rooting for Wendy Davis to turn Texas blue.
But privately, many of her supporters are resigned to her losing. And, already, some political operatives are pondering how she can stay politically relevant beyond November.
Davis is down by 12 points to opponent Greg Abbott in the race for governor, a disadvantage that many liberals believe could mean a blow-out in November.
But even if Davis suffers a big loss, she could still score a win for her political career setting herself up as an important player in the party regardless of the final score.
Its a political path followed by many candidates of both parties from Sarah Palin to Mike Huckabee who gain political power and influence even after losing an election.
Texas State Teachers Association public affairs director Ed Martin, who has worked for years in Texas politics with Davis, said her future is bright....

Her future is about as bright as Biden.
Good riddance, Abortion Barbie.
“Hail Satan” follows her to the last gasp of her political life.
Wendy Davis and Sandra Fluke.
Your Democrat “dream ticket” for 2024 when POTUS Lizzie Warren retires.
Of course Wendy will have to defeat Senator Michelle Robinson Obama in the primaries.
Make a new ‘RAT party position of High Priestess for Abortion Barbie. She promotes their prime sacrament — murdering babies by the trainload.
Abortion Barby Wendy will get smashed in the election.
Hopefully, the rat party will continue t love her and to donate money and time to try and make her relevant.
Comparing her to two elected governors is like comparing a Brownie scout member to a Seal Team Member re ability to handle and protect oneself.
very true... and neither Palin nor Huckabee lost their governorships in an election... Davis has a ways to go to be compared with both Palin and Huckabee...
Well of course he's going to say something like that - What do you expect him to say? He works for her - he won't say she's a looser!
Greg Abbott brings staunch conservatism, toughness to race for governor, but lacks Perry bravado
I was deeply honored to stand side-by-side with him defending the state of Texas, Cruz, who was solicitor general under Abbott, said in a written statement.
And Mike Huckabee isn’t all that influential, certainly not in the same league as Palin.
She’s what? A state senator? I could gain that office. Big deal.
Just in time to go up against Chelsea Hubbell Rodham Clinton in 2028.
I don’t think Gov. Palin pardoned any people who later went on to murder again, did she?
I think Abortion Barbie should advocate for murdering all of those Central American children who are pouring across our border. Afterall, is just a matter of age. What difference, at this point, does a few years make?
If she did, I’m sure the democrats would have let us know.
Oh yes, just like a generation ago Ann Richards was supposed to issue forth a new wave of Democrat domination in Texas...
In the Democratic Party, being a criminal or just plan weird is a resume enhancer.
12 points my @ss.
If she wants a political future, she needs to leave Texas.
