Failed Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis is raising money for her organization, Deeds Not Words, to train “high school and college-aged students to storm the Texas Capitol and advocate for legislative change”.

A recent fundraising email boasted of over 300 youngsters trained at the Ann Richards School to disrupt the...

The Supreme Court of the United States has resumed hearing oral arguments since the death of conservative stalwart Justice Antonin Scalia. His seat remains empty, leaving the Court’s already-tenuous balance even shakier as they address one of the most important abortion cases during recent years.

Wednesday, the Court heard oral arguments in ...

We don’t like to kick a loser when she’s down, but when this story appeared on Legal Insurrection’s radar we thought it was too good to keep to ourselves.

Back in February, then-gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis attempted to rock the boat by claiming that she supported Texas’ open carry movement.Her opponent Greg Abbott, an already-beloved-by-most Attorney General and popular favorite to win the election, already supported the measure, so perhaps at the time it seemed like a savvy move.

A picture is worth a thousand (plus or minus) words:

Not just one, but two shots at Greg Abbott’s physical paralysis

The driver won’t sit down–as this photo was taken on 11/5, I think the reason is obvious: he/she is still sore!

It’s a hybrid–what a shock!

For many living in states not called Texas, it might seem odd that a place most regard as the “reddest” state in the union would fight so hard to gain ground in traditionally-liberal districts. Isn’t a solid governing majority and clean slate of statewide office holders enough?

Wendy Davis’ bizarre and distasteful attacks on Greg Abbott are working like a charm. For Abbott.

Davis already was in a deep hole according to polls prior to the Wheelchair Attack ad.  Holding a rally with people in wheelchairs to defend the ad just compounded the problem.

If Texas politics is the wild west, then the Wendy Davis campaign is currently on a slow jog through the desert at high noon.
