Wendy Davis' Book Has Even Lower Numbers Than Her Campaign

AUSTIN, Texas -- This is a tough time to be Wendy Davis. Always viewed as a long shot in the Texas Governor's race, she dropped even further in the polls after several weeks of ill-advised attacks that were viewed as mocking her Republican opponent Greg Abbott's disability. Her campaign is almost out of money, while Abbott enters the last week of the race with more than $13 million cash on hand. Now, recently disclosed sales figures for her memoir, Forgetting to be Afraid, show that the book is selling extremely poorly -- especially in light of how much positive national press attention Davis has received promoting the book.
