Posted on 09/26/2013 7:20:45 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Democrat Wendy Davis, a state senator who catapulted to national prominence this summer with a filibuster over access to abortion, is running for Texas governor.
Two Democrats with knowledge of her decision told The Associated Press on Thursday that Davis would announce her candidacy next week. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they did not want to pre-empt her official campaign launch on Oct. 3, which will take place in her home district of Fort Worth.

How embarrassing. Murdering babies is your platform. These women are so stupid. Abortion is a war on women.
She has no chance. Perry can aid Abbott with some ads featuring dead babies, superimposed over this hag’s face.
Is there a second Texas somewhere that I’m unaware of?
Our Lady of the Third Trimester?
Anyone else find it ironic that a group of women who abort their babies and call it “liberation” want to lecture us all about motherhood?
This is great news.
Her celebrity status with libs will bring in lots of money that might otherwise go to close races.
Is she really expecting to win governor of Texas on the presumption that enough Texans will vote for her based on her endorsement of abortion on demand and even after 5 months? Is she expecting to find that a majority of Texans are not only totally on board with this but passionately support abortion on demand enough to vote for her regardless of her stance on any other issues?
So, to be consistent, all the kooks who criticized Ted Cruz by saying his 21-hour marathon was purely political will now chime in and critique Davis because they see that her rant was purely political. /s
So what? This abortion-loving woman does not deserve a second thought—which is exactly what she wants.
I understand she’s got two kids. Did she have both out of wedlock?
She’s is morally void.
Let’s keep in mind that the same Democrats who lauded this woman as a hero for filibustering a bill that was guaranteed to pass anyway are ridiculing Ted Cruz for “wasting time” engaging in another supposedly destined-to-fail filibuster. Hypocrisy is not the greatest of the left’s evils but it is one of the most persistent.
Geez, this is the Left's version of Todd Akin running for governor.
Are we going to start a pot on how long after she announces the topless or other type of sexual photos start showing up?
Almost 100% guaranteed.
Followed by: “I was young and foolish” or “a friend took advantage of me.”
Of course as a liberal hosebag, the liberal hosebag establishment will immediately forgive her.
Does anyone even know her positions on the 2nd Amendment, health care, traditional marriage, business rights, taxes of any kind and public schools?
I realized that through media coverage of her I know exactly nothing of her views on any subject other than her obscene views of abortion on demand, and presumably birth control on demand as well. Do you or any other posters know of her views on any of the topics I listed?
that’s got to be one of the strangest cat faces I’ve ever seen
Wendy Davis LOOOOOOOOVES dead babies...especially black and latino babies.
Just wondering. During her filibuster, did she ever talk about anything unrelated to the matter at hand?
Oh do not get me wrong, I still think that should take precedence.
I am just pointing out that her obscene views on abortion are the only issue that the media is basing their adulation of her on. And as a result, at least I have been having a very hard time finding out what her views are on the 2nd Amendment, private schools, home schooling, health care, traditional marriage, business rights and taxes of any kind. Which would allow us to get the full scope of what we are dealing with in Wendy above and beyond her support and endorsement of murdering babies on demand - which I of course realize is unacceptable enough as it is.
That's because it's a snowman.
If they hadn’t aborted so many Democrat babies she would have a better chance.
How about a Dead Baby hanging from a Catheter wrapped around her neck? Seems appropriate.
Use Alinksys rules for radicals against her. Red State blog ways Davis should be nicknamed” Abortion Barbie”
I doubt it. The matter at hand was baby killers, and I'm pretty sure the whole speech was all about her.
The stench of rotting aborted human beings clings to Wendy Davis.
She’s on the record as being a gun grabber. I’d be surprised if that TV spot is not already ‘in the can’ with audio of her position ...
My cat would get more votes than this broad.
I’d love to see just how much of an out of control gun grabber she is. If she is a blatant enough gun grabber, that is a damn big relief. Texas is NOT gonna go for a Governor who tries to coerce them into giving up their guns. I would watch her on PPV trying to run for governor of Texas on a platform of trying to take Texans’ guns away.
Her new campaign slogan: :Kill Babies Kill
Just throwing money in the toilet.
True...but TexGrill will be chiming in to assert that Pauken is the only candidate that has a chance of beating her in ...1....2.....3
“Do you or any other posters know of her views on any of the topics I listed?”
Why would you need to know? If killing babies ready to be born isn’t enough for you to reject her, then you have a problem.
“All I need to know is that she thinks killing babies is ok. I don’t want to know anything else.”
There is a problem with this freedom462 person and I think it was a Pauken problem but I may be remembering wrong.
Who is Pauken? Libertarian candidate or something?
Indeed. Proud to be for killing babies. Lets run on it. Only problem
Is after one or two generations well kill off our voters. No problemo, the schools will take care of that for us. Democrap indoctrination centers
“I would watch her on PPV trying to run for governor of Texas on a platform of trying to take Texans guns away.”
You haven’t said where you are from. You are a troll, I know you are a troll, and one of these days, it will be known.
So that little show on the floor of the Legislature was all about herself. No surprise. She’s a liberal — by definition, she cares not one whit about others.
I made it clear that I think her support of abortion is plenty for anyone with any sense of morality to completely reject her.
I was only asking because I was interested in knowing about any other outrageous positions she has. NOT because I think her views on abortion are not grounds to reject her on - of course they are.
And my comment on watching her on PPV trying to ban guns was about the fact that i think it would be great to see her make a complete dumbass of herself on televised campaigns trying to make Texans give up their guns. And how I would love to see her fail in the most spectacular fashion to win the election as she tries to run on abortions and taking people’s guns. I presumed that was clear from how I phrased it.
Another issue is that for people like Wendy, knowing as much as possible about their platforms always helps so that we can make 100 % sure that we are equipped and capable of destroying their campaigns and exposing candidates like these as the ridiculously pathetic jokes they are. I like knowing as much about all of the enemies as possible. And most of the media is too busy fawning over Wendy for her putrid abortion stances to give us much of anything.
Just think, her campaign song can be, “Killer”.
Wendy Davis has no chance of being elected governor of Texas.
It would be about as likely as Sarah Palin being elected governor of Massachusetts.
Just wait until people like Sheila Jackson Lee, all the gays and lesbians in Houston including the mayor and the Democrats line up behind her. I would suspect that there will also be a fair number of Republican females voting for her who have a brand on their forehead proclaiming “My body, my choice”.
Going to be an interesting time, to say the least.
Yes, there is a second Texas of which you are unaware. Put a circle of four miles radius around Fort Worth, around Dallas, around Austin, around San Antonio, around Houston, and around El Paso and you have Ms. Davis’ consitutency.
This idiot Dem-Feminist doesn’t stand a chance! She’s believing the liberal media and Dems who are urging her to run, instead of facing reality in Texas.
Greg Abbott will be Gov.
