Uh Oh: Wendy Davisí Spokesman Just Quit

Can you blame him? After a quick and unexpected rise to prominence (filibustering a late-term abortion bill, naturally) Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis’ polling numbers have been consistently underwater. But now, however, she trails her Republican opponent by double digits overall and by eight points among women -- that is, according to a recent left-leaning poll -- which is never a good sign.

Is her spokesman, I wonder, making moves while there's still time? Via mysanantonio.com:

Bo Delp, spokesman and former communications director for Sen. Wendy Davis' campaign for governor, has resigned.

Delp said it was “an honor” to work for the Democratic senator, who faces Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott. He said that he is confident in her candidacy and that he will support her “wherever and whenever possible.”

“I am proud of the work I have done, and know that my successor will continue to build on my successes, and my mistakes, to do what is necessary to win in November,” Delp said in a letter of resignation dated Tuesday.

Davis reorganized her communications department earlier this year after running into some tough sledding with the media.

The Democratic Governors Association recently announced that winning the governorship in Texas isn’t at the top of the agenda list, presumably because Davis’ chances of winning aren't that good. That, my friends, might be a problem.

I always think of Wendy Williams, punk rock chanteusy, when I see the name Wendy Davis.

Probably unfair to Wendy Williams.

I’m guessing he found at a better job at PetsMart or Cutco Cutlery.

For me, the resemblance between Abortion Barbie, Wendy Davis, and Breaking Bad's road hard and put away crack whore, Wendy, is quite remarkable. They are virtually indistinguishable both in looks and a moral values.

Maybe if Wendy Davis starting campaigning topless with electrical tape over her nipples she might see a rise in her poll numbers.

She could still win. Boehner is doing everything in his power to make changes that would guarantee her victory.

Sometimes it’s not the salesman, it’s just an unmanageably bad product.

She will when amnesty is passed. She’ll be a shoe in.

She’s a huge disappointment.

Her function as a super sinkhole for national progressive campaign ca$h is dead, and it’s only May 1st.

“She’s a huge disappointment.”

And that brings a big smile to my face.

Sounds like the wheels are coming off of Abortion Barbie’s campaign.

This will cause weeping and gnashing of teeth at PMSNBC.

Well if she loses or withdraws maybe all the publicity will get her a new sugar daddy.

“runnin’ down the hawser”

That is what I thought of immediately but you phrased it better.
