Texas Democrats may have voted Wendy Davis as their nominee for governor in Tuesday's primary, but it wasn’t pretty.
Aaron Pena, a former member of the Texas House of Representative, shared a few of the embarrassing results:
Tonight's embarrassing losses by Wendy Davis in South Texas confirms my observations about the Democratic party's neglect of the region.— Aaron Peña (@AaronPena) March 5, 2014
To the east of Hidalgo County, Wendy Davis also lost Willacy County 61% to 39%. Little support for Davis in the Valley. #txlege— Aaron Peña (@AaronPena) March 5, 2014
Just how little? Try $900.
This fall, reports showed Davis had raised “less than $700 from the four largest cities in the Rio Grande Valley.”
Even more amusingly, Davis's opponent claimed $0 in contributions on his campaign finance report in January. Yet, he still came out on top.
Wendy Davis couldn't crack 80% against a single primary opponent who raised $0. She lost more than two-dozen counties.— The Real Wendy (@WendyDavisTruth) March 5, 2014
Question: How does Battleground Texas think they’re going to “Turn Texas Blue” by neglecting one of the most important regions in the state?
