DGA Statement Regarding Wendy Davis' Campaign for Texas Governor

Latest News

WASHINGTON, DC—Governor Peter Shumlin, Chair of the Democratic Governors Association, today issued the following statement regarding Senator Wendy Davis’ campaign for governor of Texas:
“Wendy Davis is a proven fighter for middle-class families across Texas. For her entire career, she’s focused on creating good jobs, building world-class schools, keeping streets safe, and honoring the service of our veterans. Greg Abbott has chosen a different course –  he’s used his office to pursue a divisive, partisan agenda while rewarding political insiders and special interests at the expense of working people. Texans deserve better, and they’ll get it when they elect Wendy Davis their next governor.”
