Ted Cruz has now had since last November to give thought to his opening salvo against Beto O’Rourke, who has out raised Cruz every reporting period.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) on Sunday asserted that his personal attack state Sen. Wendy Davis (D) for filibustering an abortion bill even though she had been a teen mother was actually meant to be a "compliment."
Rich Perry slammed Democrat Wendy Davis, saying, “It's just unfortunate that she hasn't learned from her own example, that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.” Because Wendy Davis was the daughter of a single mother, and was a single mother herself, she’s a hypocrite. She shouldn’t even exist.
A 72-year-old woman who appeared to be doing nothing more than observing Texas Senate proceedings following state Sen. Wendy Davis' (D) <a href="http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/06/26/unruly-mob-shouts-abortion-bill-to-death-in-texas/">filibuster of an abortion bill</a> was forcibly arrested and charged with assaulting an officer early Wednesday morning.
The Daily Show's John Oliver took the Texas Republicans to task for shutting down the 13-hour filibuster by state Sen. Wendy Davis, and for their little stunt where they were going to cheat and pretend the vote came in before the deadline at midnight.
As hundreds of thousands watched online and many more watched in person, Republican Texas Senators attempted to nullify a Democrat's filibuster and claim victory.
