Texas Governor’s Race To Feature Show Down Between D-Wendy Davis And R-Greg Abbott
Yesterday’s Primary election set the ballot for the Texas Governor’s race in November.
State Sen. Wendy Davis clinched the Democratic nomination yesterday in the race to replace current Governor Rick Perry. The 50-year-old made national headlines last year with a nearly 13-hour filibuster over new abortion restrictions. Her fundraising has surpassed that of her opponent but she’s considered a heavy underdog.
Facing her in the race for the Republicans is Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott who also won the nomination for Governor yesterday in the Republican Primary.
Abbott has pledged to fight for low taxes and prioritize education. Davis says she will push for new investments in education and ‘an economy built for the jobs of tomorrow.
