  • Wendy Davis

Democrat Wendy Davis formally jumped into the Texas governor’s race. Davis, a second-term state senator, became a national sensation in June when she stood for nearly 11 hours in her pink running shoes and railed against a bill that would ban most abortions after 20 weeks and impose strict requirements on clinics. Her filibuster stopped the bill initially, but it eventually passed a special session of the GOP-controlled Legislature and was signed into law by Perry.Texas Right to Life is airing radio ads in English and Spanish in South Texas about Davis, aimed at Hispanics and socially conservative voters. The narrator in the spot says Davis is an “abortion zealot” who cast her filibuster as a stance being made on “sacred ground.” “For a Democrat to win in Texas in 2014, there would have to be an unprecedented mobilization and enthusiasm among Latino voters,” said Matthew Wilson, a political scientist at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. “An Anglo woman best known as an abortion champion doesn’t seem well positioned to achieve that.”
