DALLAS, Texas (Reuters) - Wendy Davis, the Texas state senator who staged a filibuster against sweeping abortion restrictions, is expected to announce plans to run for governor on Thursday, ending months of speculation.

And she is gonna get slaughtered in the election. LOL.

Yes she is.

Liberals seem to think that 15 minutes of fame and a slobbering media love afair is all thats needed to qualify for a positions of leadership.

So what, she fillibustered a law that was passed anyway.

Sorry Dems, Texas isn't going Democrat anytime soon

Nope, it won't. Houston, Austin, and the Valley might be blue, but the rest of the state is blood red, which will be the color of Wendy's nose after the election is over. LOL.

I won't vote for Abbot, but won't vote for Davis either. I will waste my vote on a Libertarian again. LOL.

She has the depth of knowledge and experience of your typical 24-year-old 10-o'clock news anchor in Abilene.

I'm not going to commit one way or the other this early. I will have to look up her voting record. The abortion thing isn't that big a deal for me, but if her record shows she voted mostly party line and for typical Liberal BS, then she will be out for me. If she is moderate enough, has stood her ground against certain things her party routinely supports and has reasonable ideas towards economy and taxes, I'm willing to at least consider.

But then again, at this point, I don't even know if I am going to vote in the Dem primary or the Rep one.

So Ted Cruz is an asshat clown for his filibuster but Wendy Davis is a hero according to the left??

Hell yes she's going to get slaughtered...

I'd love to see Ron Paul run for Governor... Paul vs Davis...

Uhg...you people please get out of our state.

I am a born and raised Texan with 4 generations before me calling this land our home.

Move to blue state and help your people finish it off and leave Texas alone.

What kind of low informatiom type elects a person for Governer simply because she filibusters a bill ?

Yeah! Context and reasons for the filibuster don't matter at all! Every filibuster is equatable, so if you are for one and against another you are automatically a hypocrite!

In your case that term has universal applications...

It's clearly a barebones website that has just been launched. I would say such accusations are premature.

When something sounds too stupid to be true, that's probably because it isn't true.

That is the plan. They are like locusts. When they are done running a blue state into the ground, they head to a red state and try to destroy it. And Texas is a crown jewel to them. If they get Texas, they would have to lose NY or California in a Presidential election to lose. So you can be sure that they will be pouring their efforts into Texas.

If the GOP doesn't alter their thinking Texas will be a blue state sooner or later. Damn right the Democrats will try to capture that ASAP, that puts the White House forever out of GOP hands.

Sounds? no. I went to the site, and even tried a couple of different ways to try and get in there....That isn't me reading something about it, but practical experience. But, I will agree that it may just be that it is being revamped for the race. Either way, to suggest that she, or her team couldn't produce anything other than a donate button, makes one wonder of her competency.
