Moneyball: Greg Abbott outraises Wendy Davis 3-1 in the dash for campaign cash [Texas]
Dallas Morning News ^ | Feb. 4, 2014 | Wayne Slater

Attorney General Greg Abbott is the undisputed money king in the race against Wendy Davis –
collecting three times more cash last month than his Democratic foe. Abbott has amassed a
sizeable war chest of nearly $30 million for the governor’s race, far ahead of Davis’
$10 million on hand with nearly a full year ahead of them before the November general election.

Davis stunned the Abbott team in January by reporting she raised more money in the second
half of 2013. But the Republican attorney general stormed back in January, collecting
$3.1 million compared to Davis’ $913,000......

Looks like the abortion lobby knows a loser when they see one. We need to make this a convincing trouncing for the ‘Turn Texas Blue’ crowd. Then we can deport the Castro twins.

The Democrats are attacking from all directions it seems.

Battleground Texas raises modest $1.1 million in four months

WASHINGTON – Battleground Texas, the group that Democrats created in hopes of ending the decades-long GOP
grip on state politics, announced Sunday night that it has raised $1.1 million since its launch in February.

That’s a fairly modest sum, given the big ambitions and the uphill effort it faces.

Organizers boasted that the contributions came from 3,537 donors and represent a “strong show of grassroots
support,” with 79 percent of donations raised in Texas.

Did I read somewhere that the Girl Scouts support Wendy Davis? Is that how they really went young girls to behave? She’s a liar, a user, supporter of abortion at any time during a pregnancy, did I miss anything? They can take their expensive cookies and shove ‘em.

They support her not as an endorsement but as an "incredible" woman who deserved
to be on a 2013 "women of the year" list. Gloria Steinem was also mentioned.

How and why is she an “incredible woman” who deserved to be on the list?

With Hillary now out there campaigning around and providing foreign policy advice to Barry and Hanoi Boi, Windy might want to go see Bill. He’s got a lot of money.

Not a bad idea as long as Windy is up for the quid pro quo that is bound to be negotiated...

I sent Abbot money after I found out Wendy Davis’ staff ridiculed the man for being crippled.

Backfire.

Who’s breaking out from under abortion
Call it a name that’s full of despair
Who’s bending down to kill the emotion
Everyone know its Wendy

And Wendy has stormy eyes
that flush away unborn lives
And Wendy has wings to fly
Above the fray, above the fray

No doubt she’s a hit in Austin. Which is too bad, Austin had some really pretty areas when I flew down there in the 1999.

And some not-so-pretty. Like an abandoned Applebee’s in a weed-infested parking lot.

They don’t do well now, but how many places had a failing Applebee’s in 1999?

Hmmmm....Wendy Davis. Sounds familiar. By any chance is that the woman who, armed with a pair of sneakers and depends undergarments, tried to make sure more innocent unborn babies were killed? The one that gave up custody of her own kids to their step-dad to further her career, AFTER he bankrolled her expensive education? Ah, couldn't be. A witch like that wouldn't have any political support, now would she?

Whose sleuthing down the streets of Dem cities, lying to everybody she meets, whose faking out the minds of her dummies, everyone knows its Wendy.
And Wendy tells stormy lies, flashing her mascara eyes, and likes to see babies die, for womens rights, its her delights.
