Yesterday's Texas Tribune:
State Sen. Wendy Davis, the Democrats' best hope to run for Texas governor, said Wednesday she is postponing the announcement of her decision so she can help care for her sick father.Cahnman's Musings wishes Abortion Barbie's father a complete recovery, his situation can't be fun.
“I had hoped to make public my decision about that next week, but with everything that’s going on with my dad, I won’t be doing that,” Davis said. “It’s likely it will be late September before I do.”
Davis’ father, Jerry Russell, has been in critical condition at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth following complications from abdominal surgery. In a Facebook post, Davis said Russell, who has been battling pneumonia, was “continuing to show small but positive steps toward improvement” but was “not out of the woods” yet.
That being said, Abortion Barbie is in trouble regardless of the race. Whether her opponent is Konni Burton, Greg Abbott, or Tom Pauken, any one of them will give her fits. Late term abortion isn't popular.
Bottom line: Texas Republicans have been gearing up campaigns for two months; meanwhile, Democrats won't start for at least two more weeks.
