The Democrat who wants to be governor of Texas got herself in hot water when she shut the press out of one of her major speeches a few months back. The anger that that move generated evidently has not taught Davis anything. Oops — she did it again!
President Obama met today in private with Texas State Senator Wendy Davis (D), who is running this year to replace retiring Gov. Rick Perry (R).
Reporters who are in Texas with the president today did not get to witness the meeting, and learned about it from the White House press office, which provided them with the following readout:
“This afternoon, following his remarks at the LBJ Library, the President visited briefly with Texas state senator Wendy Davis.”
Pool reporter Todd Gillman of the Dallas Morning News had this to say about the meeting:
“This took place with the pool in the vans so obviously we didn’t witness it. Davis is the Democratic nominee for governor, facing Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who had publicly dared her to be seen with Obama.”
It’s Bill White all over again. He was the Democrats’ nominee in 2010. Every time President Obama would show up in Texas, White managed to be clear on the other side of the state. He just wouldn’t be seen with the president and leader of his own party.
Wendy Davis agrees with Barack Obama’s policies — Obamacare, the EPA, radicalism on abortion, all of it. Why won’t she be seen with him?
