Former Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis – who gained notoriety after wearing pink tennis shoes to a 13-hour filibuster to block a pro-life measure in 2013 –  announced on Monday her intention to run for a congressional seat in the Lone Star State.
“I’m proud to announce my campaign for Congress in TX-21!” Davis announced on Twitter Monday morning. “I’m running to be a voice for every Texan who feels forgotten by a broken political system. It’s time to make Washington listen — will you stand with me?”

Davis is challenging Republican incumbent Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), who recently slammed far-left members of the “Squad” for falsely describing the conditions of migrant shelters on the southern border. He told Breitbart News Daily that he has personally toured many of the facilities, and he sent his chief of staff to tour the Clint facility specifically in recent weeks.

Everyone, please send her a quarter so she can go to downtown Austin and have a rat gnaw that thing off her face.

"I'm running for Congress because people's voices are still being silenced," she said. "I'm running for our children and grandchildren, so they can live and love and fight for change themselves."

Strange, last time she ran for a Texas Office, it was so she could silence the voices of the unborn children of Texas, so they would not live.

That is so true.

Her response would be is that she reserves the right to choose who should be silenced.

I see that yawn, @Bigun, but remember the demographics that we're dealing with.  I think Chip Roy is the best thing that has happened to Texas in a long time, and those qualities have made him #1 enemy to the squishy middle and the left.  I will be surprised if he survives his next race.

Yaay!  Abortion Barbie is back!   
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

Her ego and her incredible moral superiority to the rest of us won't let her.

I guess she ran out of the money she got from auctioning off her panties and other unmentionables.

Not unlike most politicians, especially those on the left.

Why can't she run for President, like a good little irrelevant Texas Prog? She probably could get more primary votes than Faux-Mex Bobby.

I think that was being discussed a while back.

One would think she'd already done that when she conned her ex into paying for that boob job.  Priorities, I guess.   :shrug:
