Wendy Unites Texans
- Wendy Davis unites Texas voters, bringing them together as a modern coalition in a way that defies the polarizing, hyper-partisan, well-heeled insider approach that has kept Rick Perry, Greg Abbott and other Austin-centric state leaders in power.
- Wendy’s broad appeal centers on her courage to stand up to the abuse of power in Austin combined with her compelling personal story – and both are reinforced by a mainstream record emphasizing strong schools, economic responsibility and a willingness to take risks and use political capital to protect middle-class families.
- Over the past several months, non-partisan, and even some fair-minded Republicans, have reached out to the Lone Star Project to find out how they can help and work with Wendy Davis.
SD10 mirrors Texas racially and politically
- Wendy won and holds highly competitive Texas State Senate District 10, which was safe for Republicans until Wendy’s election in 2008.
- The district can fairly be described as a microcosm of Texas. It is diverse both racially and politically with a large population of Latino and African American citizens, but a plurality of Anglo voters.
- The type coalition Wendy has built in District 10 made up of Democrats, independents and fair-minded Republicans of all ethnicities is precisely the type coalition that can, and must, be built for a Democrat to win statewide in Texas.
Wendy is Battle-tested
Wendy believes in grassroots organizing
- Recent failed Democratic statewide efforts have been timid, insular and unable to invest in the type of technology and expertise required to identify and mobilize a diverse Democratic coalition.
- We can expect the Davis campaign to build and improve upon the outstanding grassroots campaign she ran in her Senate race.
- The presence of Battleground Texas brings experienced and talented man and woman power that establishes the first true statewide statewide Democratic organizing effort in more than a decade.
Texans have good reason to reject Greg Abbott
