Well, if you thought the Wendy Davis gubernatorial campaign, which has devolved into a clown show, couldn’t get any worse; you should brace yourselves. She had this tweet featuring a bunch of eager young Davis supporters, but there’s only one problem. It was actually a group of volunteers for the College Republican Federation of Virginia who posed for a photo after knocking on doors for Ed Gillespie, the GOP senate hopeful in the Old Dominion.
Hey, Wendy Davis. Those supporters of yours sure do look familiar. Is that the smell of desperation? Yes. Yes it is. http://t.co/Oik89NuIgU— CRFV (@CRFV) October 22, 2014
My colleague Christine Rousselle recently asked if the floundering Texas Democrat had the worst Twitter campaign of all time. This comes after she attacked her Republican opponent, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, on Twitter about interracial marriage, despite him having a Hispanic wife.
Greg Abbott won't say whether he'd defend an interracial marriage ban—troubling but not surprising from someone who defends a "poll tax."— Wendy Davis (@WendyDavisTexas) October 20, 2014
In general, the Davis campaign has been launching various kamikaze attacks as the 2014 election cycle comes to a close. She launched a rather egregious attack ad against Abbott that featured a wheelchair; Abbott was left paralyzed from the waist down when a tree fell on him while jogging in the mid-1980s.
If this is in your ad, and your opponent is in a wheelchair, you have probably made a mistake. pic.twitter.com/gXHPVdEQ5h— Katherine Miller (@katherinemiller) October 10, 2014
Then, to make matters worse, Davis doubled down and held a presser using disabled Americans as props in the background.
So sincerely embarrassed for Wendy Davis' campaign team right now. Who is calling the shots over there? Just awful. pic.twitter.com/SZnR8tHQOj— Will Franklin (@WILLisms) October 13, 2014
Talk about a disaster. And Davis is trailing Abbott by double-digits two weeks from Election Day. I can't imagine why.
