Abortion Barbie Is Back And Ready To Play Golden Goose For Texas Democrats

by Resurgent Insider Read Profile arrow_right_alt

Remember Wendy Davis, the photogenic blonde Texas Democrat who took to the floor of the Texas Senate back in 2013 to advocate for abortion, non-ironically wearing red shoes? Remember how she ran for Texas Governor and got her backside handed to her by Gov. Greg Abbott in an embarrassing loss?

Wendy Davis speaks at the Politicon conference in Pasadena, California, a locale where her values are probably better represented than in Texas.

If you missed the news last year, Davis is back and running for Congress– against Rep. Chip Roy.

Given that Roy’s district is rated R+10, this looks like a far-from-serious gambit.

But it looks like Texas Democrats are treating it at least a little bit seriously.

FEC filings just published reveal that a joint fundraising committee was established yesterday in the form of the Wendy Davis Victory Fund.

As you can see from the FEC Form 1, or Statement of Organization, the two committees participating in the joint fundraiser are the Wendy Davis for Congress campaign and the Texas Democratic Party.

Davis isn’t a serious candidate or contender, but she is an attractive poster child for a rabidly pro-abortion gang of big and small donors alike, which the Texas Democratic Party desperately needs to continue its quest to turn Texas blue. It is a difficult, and pricey, proposition after all.

In other words, while Abortion Barbie is indeed back, and we should expect to see more of her this year with her picking a fight against Roy, her presence on the political stage is probably best understood as a fundraising gambit to get hardcore NARAL and Planned Parenthood supporters’ money into a big, red state.

Of course, that in itself is noteworthy. Democrats are going to struggle to turn Texas blue. But they may make it far more purple and progressive without a lot of vigilance from conservatives.
