Wendy is spending a huge amount of her time campaigning in places like New York. She went fundraising there recently, and what she had to say to New Yorkers might be of interest to folks in Texas.
On Tuesday, December 10th, Texas State Senator Wendy Davis was welcomed by some of New York’s finest movers and shakers at a contemporary loft gallery in SoHo. At this small cocktail reception Ms. Davis spoke about her race for Governor, what she envisions for the deeply red state of Texas and how her grassroots campaign seeks to turn this key state blue in the near future.
Linking her past to her political agenda, Ms. Davis spoke of her experience on the Senate floor for more than 11 hours as part of a filibuster to block Republicans from approving some of the toughest restrictions on abortion in the country. That’s interesting because Wendy does not want to be known as “Abortion Barbie” in Texas but outside of Texas apparently she doesn’t seem to mind as much.
She also went on to say that Texas has the tendency and reputation of passing toxic policies that seem to spread across the country, as other states follow by their example. So Wendy…… What are those “toxic” policies? I mean besides the fact that that New York is trying to emulate Texas by offering tax breaks for businesses that move there just like Governor Perry has gone to New York to tout as a reason for businesses to relocate to Texas. Are these tax breaks “toxic” to Wendy Davis? What will all those New Yorkers who moved here for jobs do when Wendy Davis and the Democrats chase those jobs away?
Thanks for Brian Preston with the PJ Tattler for making us aware of Wendy’s latest trip to New York.
