Democrat Wendy Davis, the Texas state Senator who is running for governor, avoided her party label in a four-minute thirty-second campaign ad that introduces herself to voters statewide.
Davis became a mainstream media darling after she filibustered for the right for women to have late-term abortions in unsafe abortion clinics, but she has been reluctant to tout the support of her new allies to Texans in a statewide election.
As even the Los Angeles Times observed after seeing the advertisement:
Let us review:
— Field of bluebonnets? Check.
— Rippling Lone Star flag? Check.
— Hand-tooled cowboy boots? Check.
— Chugging oil well? Check.
What’s missing in the four-minute-30-second spot? Any mention of Davis’ party affiliation, to wit, her affiliation with the Democratic Party.
