Wendy Davis Continues to Insist Her "Nasty" Campaign Ad is Totally Fair

Posted: Oct 12, 2014 6:00 PM

On Friday, Texas Democrat Wendy Davis' campaign released what has been dubbed "one of the nastiest campaign ads" of this election cycle. Even the liberal site Mother Jones called the ad "offensive and nasty," and MSNBC called the spot a potential career-killer. With prominent figures from both sides of the aisle condemning the ad, one would think (hope?) that the Davis campaign would come to their senses and apologize, but instead, they've been doing the exact opposite.

At first there was evidence that Davis was trying to sound like less of a monster on her Twitter account:

...then this happened:

While unless Davis is surveying members of her own campaign team (or a class of kindergarteners), I'm not quite sure where this "80 percent" figure is coming from. (I mean, when you've lost Mother Jones...)

Polls currently show Davis down by 11 points. Davis' campaign was labeled as one of the worst-run of 2014.
