She’s the Daily Kos darling, not the Dem Party’s.

A one-issue candidate.

It’s an dark and ominous portend for the Progressives.

2016 elections will be a referendum on Obama and his ardent ‘hear no evil’, ‘see no evil’, ‘speak no evil’ monkeys [name chosen with no racial intent] and the left is having a hard time getting the electorate to buy in to the ‘War on blah blah’ motivational memes.

I want Abortion Barbie to lose. Actually, I wish Mitch could also lose, but those are the two choices. That said, how can they tell this far in advance that ‘it looks like’ she will lose her campaign? Are they saying that because she doesn’t have a lot of high dollar donors as one must have by this pre-election date?

The Democrats are in big trouble, politically...across the nation. They will not give Wendy Davis one cent to support her campaign!!! This useless piece of humanity....Ms. Davis, should be removed from the Democrat ticket in Texas!!! If she remains on the top of the ballot, the Democrat Party will take the worst political beating....across the board in Texas then they have ever had!!!

I guess Wendy will reveal the exact number of abortion boosters in the state of TX, and it is a large number if not a voting majority.

There is some chance that the little Fort Worth district might replace Wendy with a conservative, but an establishment Republican is also running in the May 27 runoff.

they are really afraid if they won’t give their high-profile “star” any money for a campaign.

Was there any hope she would win in this political climate and moreover in Texas? Only among the most delusional Demos and handwringing Repubs could that have been possible.

Wendy Davis is no Ma Richards.

Shumlin is considered a centrist? Really?

The mainstream media will do their very best to shape the issues for 2014. You can expect to see the real issues pushed aside in favor of gay rights, racism, women's rights and global warming. The economy, national debt, foreign policy, energy policy and Obamacare will be off limits.

The first question asked of every conservative candidate will be "Why do you oppose the right of married Black lesbian women to control their own bodies during periods of oppressive weather caused by global warming?"

I take it you haven't followed the Texas governor's race this year. I believe even if Greg Abbott was killed 2 months before the election, he would still be lying Abortion Barbie. It will like set a record in the landslide of votes.

When she’s not saying utterly stupid things such as, “My education plan is dynamic and will take on ideas as a ship takes on water” (somebody please get her a copy of the Titanic so she can see how that ends)… or “Greg Abbott should walk a day in my shoes!” (Um, yes, he’s in a wheelchair) she’s having to also answer for the lies the blatant lies that have been perpetuated for years during her different political runs. No kidding, she is beginning to make Joe Biden look like a rocket scientist. My sincerest apologies to all of the rocket scientist.

Remarkable that such a severely flawed person has survived to this late date. Dems will support her even if she were eating a human baby in her soup. One wonders if she would still be here if she were less attractive.

the only way Abbott loses is if he comes out for amnesty

A real conservatives is running for the Davis state Senate seat but is challenged by an establishment Republican in the May 27 runoff. Either Republican can win that district in November.

I don’t think that would cause the majority to vote for Abortion Barbie.

I don’t think Abbott coming out for Amnesty would even lower his win over Abortion Barbie to less than double digits.

While such a move could greatly cull the ranks of strong conservatives like FReepers, I don’t see the majority of the average Texas voter to make that choice.

“Will take on ideas as a ship takes on water” WTF?! She probably didn’t write that. Somebody thought it sounded impressive, and that somebody may still be writing speeches for her. Thanks for the info. Texas has been ‘getting hot’ before summer even begins.

I thought the best was saying someone in a wheelchair “should walk a day in my shoes”. That’s Biden level comments right there.
