Skip to comments.Wendy Davisí Campaign Just Started a War with the TX Press Corps (Update: TX Media Explode in Rage)

Before I get to the tweets that serve as a timeline, we need to set the stage. David Rauf is the Austin bureau reporter for the San Antonio Express-News and the Houston Chronicle. Those newspapers serve Texas largest and second-largest cities. They are big dogs among the Texas press. Jan Soifer is the chair of the Travis County Democratic Party.
The Travis County Democratic Party held a fundraiser with Wendy Davis on Tuesday, and Davis delivered her stump speech. Thats normal stuff. But in a highly unusual move, the TCDP and the Davis campaign barred the event to all but one media outlet, the Texas Tribune, which livestreamed it. According to Rauf, not only did the Tribune get exclusive access, a Davis campaign press release told other media to stay away. They would not be welcome or admitted.
Rauf took to Twitter today trying to get some answers, because apparently the TCDP and the Davis campaign have circled their wagons....

What'd we ever do before Twitter? LOL

Wendy Davis ought to just throw in the towel and drop out. Her campaign is just lurching from disaster to disaster.
Greg Abbott’s campaign is probably amazed at their good fortune. They’re also playing it smart and letting Wendy shoot herself to pieces.
That’s good for Mr. Abbott. When someone makes an ass of themselves, shut up, stand back and let it happen.
After the election of the faux squaw Warren, I no longer underestimate the stupidity of voters.
Yes, I feel the same, and likewise about the awestruck welcome given to Barack Obama when he stole the limelight in his first presidential campaign, circa 2007.
Whenever I think of the stupidity of the American voter, I think of faux squaw and seven years ago...
You’re dead on right. If you’re a progressive, Wendy’s narrative is compelling. The fact that it is not true doesn’t matter. Same thing with Warren. Most voters know they are lying but they will vote for these psychopaths anyhow.
San Antonio is bigger than Dallas?
No, actually, the Dallas/Ft Worth MSA as a whole is the largest population center in Texas and fourth largest in the United States and creeping up on being third.
Does anyone have background information on Soifer and Martin, and other Barbie staff?
Like to see where they came from, both politically and rock they crawled out of.
Davis is a degenerate animal pyscopath
Self destructing so quickly the CPUSA may have to cut her loose and bring in a new comrade to carry the red flag
Do you know who the Dem's will draft if she drops out? I'm pretty sure I do, and I want Wendy to stay in the Race.
And yes, I know filing has closed, but I figure they’d find some way around it.
Who are you thinking they will replace her with?
Julian “agenda 21” Castro.
Yep, time to support Barbie.
If either of the Castros have filed and we just don’t know it yet.

Need to tie as many Democrats in Texas to Wendy as possible. Hopefully when she goes down, she’ll drag the entire party with her.
