We’re a red state, where some polls say were evenly split on abortion; that’s why Wendy Davis will lose on Election Day.  It could be bad; if it were a boxing match, Greg Abbott would have won this thing by a TKO weeks ago!

I’m sure Davis will sit down after Election Day and figure out what went wrong.

IF she’s listening, here’s some advice:Wendy Loses

Not too long ago, you were the ‘It’ girl in Texas politics; your your pro-choice filibuster, your pink shoes. So many people wanted a piece of what you were offering. What happened?

Those pink shoes defined who you were, yet we rarely saw them in your ads; this spot is 4 1/2 minutes of your life story.

We see your friends, but we don’t see the personality those shoes represented.

It seems from the start of your campaign, the unforgettable candidate became forgettable!

The debates didn’t fire any one up.

The ad with the wheelchair seemed to just fire up Abbott’s camp.

‘Greg Abbott. He’s not for you.’  Davis should have spent time doing what so many people in Texas do: Stick to her guns!

GovernorsPeople like Jesse Ventura and Arnold Schwarzenegger became governors because voters bought in to who they were.

The only ‘real’ moment in the Davis campaign? When she appeared on The Daily Show.

Pink ShoesRunning for office is kind of like running through life; we all go  farther and faster in a comfy pair of shoes. How about sticking with the pink ones instead of breaking in a new style?
