MSNBC.com Pushes Wendy Davisí Strategy to Become Texas Governor
NewsBusters.org ^ | October 31, 2013 | Jeffrey Meyer

Ever since Texas State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) engaged in an 18-hour filibuster to protest new abortion safety measures, the folks at MSNBC have taken it upon themselves to act as her unofficial campaign for governor. Apart from the numerous on-air segments pushing Ms. Davis’ candidacy, the new MSNBC.com website has followed suit in a new puff piece entitled “How Wendy Davis can win.”

Author Zachary Roth penned a 23-paragraph article which serves more as a memo for Democratic strategists than an actual informative piece of journalism. Peppered with quotes from Democratic strategists, the MSNBC national reporter argues that Davis has a chance to instead put together a cross-racial coalition that brings together minorities and liberal or moderate whites—especially women.”

Despite Roth admitting in the very first paragraph that anything Davis tries to do to win in 2014 will be “too late to help Wendy Davis’ bud for governor next year” that doesn’t stop the MSNBCer from giving his liberal readers some wishful thinking about how a Wendy Davis victory would happen. After arguing that Ms. Davis must follow the steps of President Obama’s 2008 campaign, Roth then turned to MSNBC’s favorite subject, abortion, to discuss why he wants Wendy Davis to be governor.

Rothed quoted Jim Henson, director of the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas, to push the idea that “It’s not about abortion. It’s about men bullying them and closing clinics where they get healthcare.” Roth then doubled down on his pro-Davis sentiments, quoting yet another liberal, this time Democratic strategist Matt Angle to comment that, It’s not just a matter of Wendy Davis appealing to women voters, it’s Greg Abbott and other Republicans really alienating women voters. So in terms of getting an increased Anglo vote, you get a lot of otherwise independent women willing to vote for a mainstream Democrat.”

A “mainstream Democrat” at MSNBC is someone that stands up for 18-hours arguing for the right to kill a baby late in pregnancy and to oppose sensible regulations on abortion clinics? No wonder Zachary Roth thinks Wendy Davis should be the next governor of Texas.

Did you expect them to want Sarah Palin in that spot?

If the Texas GOP has any sense at all, they will bombard her with pictures and stories from the Gosnell trial and make her try to defend them.

If “Abortion Barbie” can actually win or even come close to winning in Texas then this country and the Republican party are truly finished....

Hope they don’t expect to do any ballot box stuffing. Voter ID laws are in place in Texas.

The Black Panthers can sit this one out because voter intimidation at the polls is NOT tolerated in Texas.

Filthy democrats are mostly in the large cities, but Texas is a large State, with lots of people living the “small town” life - it is the rural areas that rule this State.

Wow, they are very, very afraid of Ted.

They know he speaks the truth.

They cannot handle the truth.

I hope they send Special Ed to Texas to campaign for her. Texans would give him some “Love”.

I looked up her Texas Senate elections.
Her two wins were with 49 and 51 percent of the vote.
Appears she’s not quite the formidable candidate the MSM is trying to sell to America.

Agreed. A Wendy Davis governorship would spell doom. She’s well known for being pro baby killing, but the damage she would cause goes much further. She fully supports the radical perverted homosexual agenda, is for Obamacare, is for illegals getting drivers licenses and is a gun grabber. It’s not likely she wins, but if she does, It’s very very bad news for Texas.

What would be alarming even if she loses would be BHO appointing her to some federal position. Whatever this POS touches she ruins.

The MSM will use every dirty trick in the book to promote her and attack her opponent and millions will flow to her campaign from out of state. It’s our duty to counter this and ensure she loses Texas in a landslide.
