    Casar will be among the most progressive members of Congress ever to serve from Texas. During his tenure on the City Council, he was best known for supporting cuts to the police department and his fight against the encampment bans that had translated into homeless citizens living in tents in public parks and under Interstate 35 bridges. He had the backing of prominent progressives like U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but also the support of prominent locals like Austin Mayor Steve Adler and former state Sen. Wendy Davis. Rodriguez, seen as his most competitive rival, warned...

    A White House staffer and former Texas state representative are among those suing several participants of a "Trump Train" that allegedly harassed a Biden campaign bus last October in Texas, claiming in a lawsuit filed Thursday that the Trump supporters engaged in coordinated, illegal political intimidation in violation of the Ku Klux Klan Act. The complaint was filed on behalf White House staffer, David Gins; former Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis; former Biden campaign volunteer Eric Cervini; and the driver of the Biden campaign bus, Timothy Holloway. The plaintiffs wrote in their complaint filed in the Western District of Texas...

    Pro-life U.S. Congressman Chip Roy easily defeated Democrat challenger Wendy Davis, a well-known abortion activist, on Tuesday in what was considered a hotly contested Texas race. The San Antonio Express-News reports Roy won the 21st Congressional District of Texas by more than 6 points. Roy has a 100-percent pro-life voting record from the National Right to Life Committee. His key votes include supporting the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and rejecting taxpayer funding to pro-abortion groups. On Wednesday morning, the Susan B. Anthony List, which endorsed him, congratulated the congressman on winning another term. “BIG PRO-LIFE WIN: Rep. Chip Roy...

    Former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis is running for the U.S. House, hoping to unseat freshman U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, a Republican from Hays County, a congressional aide told the American-Statesman on Thursday. The revelation ends months of speculation and sets the stage for what could be a high-profile duel in a congressional district national Democrats are aggressively targeting.

    Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) joined some of his Republican colleagues in calling for a recount, audit, and full review of the election, stating Monday morning that “fewer than 100,000 votes total” separate former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump in key swing states. “Right now — there are fewer than 100,000 votes total — out of almost 150 million cast — separating AZ, GA, WI, & PA (plus other close states like NV) with a number of lingering questions,” the congressman, who defeated Democrat challenger Wendy Davis, said.

    The Washington Post's glowing profile of Stacey Abrams last week is just the latest effort of legacy media lionizing failed Democratic candidates. The Washington Post ran a glowing profile of failed Democrat Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams Thursday that better fits a paid campaign advertisement than a close and critical look at a potential vice president. In the Post’s cheerleading piece aptly headlined, “The Power of Stacey Abrams,” the legacy outlet paints a gallant portrait of a woman who has never won a statewide election as a progressive superhero ready to heed her own calls to serve in the nation’s...
  • Wendy Davis wins Democratic primary in Texas’ Congressional District 21

    AUSTIN, Texas — Wendy Davis has won the Democratic nomination in Texas’ Congressional District 21. She will run against incumbent Chip Roy in the general election on Nov. 3 to determine who will represent the district in the U.S. House of Representatives. AP called the race as Davis was ahead by a wide margin over her opponent, Jennie Lou Leeder. Davis rose to fame after delivering a nearly 13-hour filibuster as a Texas State Senator in 2013. In 2014, Davis lost to Gov. Greg Abbott in Texas’ gubernatorial race. Texas’ Congressional District 21 spans from Austin to San Antonio and...

    A year ago, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) announced its aim to flip Texas’s 21st District. It’s a longtime GOP seat, held by freshman Rep. Chip Roy and for three prior decades by the equally conservative Lamar Smith. Republican win margins have tightened there over time, but Democrats still need some right-leaning voters to split their tickets. So, they’re gearing to nominate… Wendy Davis? The former state senator’s 2013 filibuster of pro-life legislation, her failed 2014 gubernatorial campaign, and her subsequent nonprofit work have made her nationally famous for abortion liberalism. Her reality is more complicated; she is extreme...

    Failed Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will launch a bid to unseat pro-life Republican Texas Rep. Chip Roy in 2020. The abortion activist is best known for filibustering a bill to ban late-term abortions in the Texas legislature. The revelation ends months of speculation and sets the stage for what could be a high-profile duel in a congressional district national Democrats are aggressively targeting. Abigail Sheppard, press secretary for U.S. Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Brownsville, said Thursday that “Wendy spoke to the congressman directly that she plans on running.” Davis, a former state senator, said in April that she was...

Counseling sessions for all 12 of you devastated fans will begin at 10:00 tomorrow. One of the most entertaining aspects of this Democrat race for the loser’s ring thus far has been watching how our fake news media considers it to be big “news” when a billionaire like Bloomberg or Tom Steyer makes his inevitable announcement that he’s not really going run, not at all. Why is this news? This is the fourth time we’ve been through...

    It is only speculation at this point but there is discussion that late-term abortion activist Wendy Davis may replace Cecile Richards as the CEO of the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Davis is the former Texas state legislator who earned national infamy after she filibustered a Bill to ban late-term abortions. She then ran for governor and lost by a mile to pro-life Texas Governor Greg Abbott. She was so extreme on abortion that even many Hispanic Democrats who have never voted Republican before cast ballots for Abbott. Since losing the election, Davis has been on the speaking circuit and the...

"I might," Castro told more than 350 people at a political conference near the University of Texas on Sunday morning. Davis' comments came at the same event.

    Failed Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis is keeping an eye on the "electoral climate in Texas" as she decides when she should make another political run, she wrote in Cosmopolitan. Davis, in a piece on how she "came back stronger after losing" by over 20 points in her 2014 run for governor, says she still has hopes to run again for office some day. "I'm trying to figure out when I should put myself back out there, and when will the electoral climate in Texas be right for me," Davis wrote. "I want to serve this state," she wrote. "I...

    It’s been nearly three years since Wendy Davis stood in the Texas State Capitol and filibustered an abortion bill for 11 hours straight, buoyed by her pink sneakers, a back brace, and the knowledge that there were so many women outside the chamber watching her fight and cheering. The bill eventually passed, Davis later lost a gubernatorial bid, and she is now out of politics for the first time in decades. Throughout all of that, however, she’s proven that she’s more than willing to keep trying to get things done — even when the chance of victory seems to be...

    Republican presidential candidate says some people will be surprised who really thinks abortion is a losing campaign issue: Democrats. Cruz recently pointed out how abortion was a horrendous political issue for Democrats in Texas - the second largest state in the country - because the Democrats' position of supporting late-term abortions turned off a large portion of Hispanics voters who are pro-life. As the liberal Texas Tribune reports: Asked during a question-and-answer session with voters about how Republicans could run effectively on social issues in states beyond Iowa, home to the first nominating contest, Cruz insisted the GOP has nothing...

    POCAHONTAS, Iowa — Ted Cruz on Thursday reached back to the 2014 election cycle to argue abortion is a losing issue for Democrats, holding up his state's last gubernatorial race as prime evidence.Asked during a question-and-answer session with voters about how Republicans could run effectively on social issues in states beyond Iowa, home to the first nominating contest, Cruz insisted the GOP has nothing to be ashamed of. On abortion, for example, he argued Democrats, including presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton, are out of sync with the overwhelmingly majority of voters. “You know who doesn’t think abortion is a winning issue for...

    From the Texas Tribune: Intervening in what could be a landmark decision, the Obama Administration, state and federal lawmakers and medical experts asked the U.S. Supreme Court Monday to overturn Texas' 2013 abortion law, which could shut down about half of the state's 19 remaining abortion clinics. In 45 amicus briefs filed to the Supreme Court, opponents of the Texas abortion law known as House Bill 2 argued that restrictions under the law are unconstitutional because they impose an undue burden on women seeking abortions and would do little to improve women's health.
