Democrat Wendy Davis is set for another Washington fundraiser. At the end of this week, the senator best known for championing late-term abortion at substandard clinics will appear alongside (but not allow herself to be photographed with) Beltway Democrats like Nancy Pelosi. Such photos would prove harmful to Davis’ campaign to make herself appear to be a mainstream Texas politician, instead of the partisan Democrat that her record shows that she is.

Davis’ campaign will hold the fundraiserĀ here:




Davis can expect a decent turnout for her DC fundraiser. The fact is, out-of-state fundraisers are funding her campaign far more than Texans are. According to Texas Ethics Commission records examined by The Real Wendy, Washington alone accounts for far more of Davis’ campaign funds than one of the Democrats’ strongholds in Texas.



The Rio Grande Valley is typically one of the Texas Democrats’ fundraising cores. But while Davis has raised very little there to date, she has raised more than 75x more money from Washington than from the RGV.

The media loves Wendy Davis. Washington politicians love Wendy Davis. Texans though…if you go by her fundraising totals so far, not so much.

As a republican I overwhelmingly support the democrats dumping as much money as possible into the Davis campaign. I hope they empty their coffers and ignore other states where they actually have a chance. Lets get that number to $100mm! Abbot for the win (major landslide)

Wendy has no illusions that she will win. This is just an exercise in trying to create a nationwide persona. After her defeat, Wendy will move to DC/NYC, and be a frequent participant on the CNN/MSNBC screechfests.
She'll have her bonifides as standing up to the white Repub patriarchy, and develop a national campaign presence.
Hillary/Wendy 2016, anyone?

Texas GOP could learn from Cal Dems: a hire-for-fire operative follows her everywhere and demands the state press report any misstep as the Crime of the Century. Works.Every.Time. (In Cal, at least.)

I have no objections to Dems wasting their money on elections they cannot win.
