‘Abortion Barbie’ Wendy Davis Running For Congress 5 Years After Landslide Loss In Gubernatorial Race

Excerpt:

Former Democratic Texas State Sen. and failed gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has decided to run for Texas’ 21st Congressional District.

The announcement came from Davis’ confidant Marc Winkelman at a Gala for the Texas Observer, according to Dallas Morning News reporter Lauren McGaughy Thursday.

Davis rose to prominence in 2013 for her filibuster of a 20-week abortion ban bill being considered in the Texas Legislature at the time. The live stream of the filibuster was tweeted out by then-President Barack Obama and led to widespread media coverage.

Davis became known for the pink sneakers she wore that night and made them a symbol of her strident pro-abortion views. Then-Gov. Rick Perry would eventually call a special session and sign the bill into law after it was killed in regular session by Davis’ filibuster.

She also picked up a nickname during the process, conservative commentator Erick Erickson dubbed her “Abortion Barbie,” a name that would go on to follow Davis at protests and in political advertising. Another Texas publication, Texas Monthly, gave her a different title, “Bum Steer of the Year,” for her landslide 20-point loss against now Governor Greg Abbott in 2014.

She should run for President. She's got the same chance as all the other Demotards … none.
