Wendy Davis is just too liberal for Texas

Texas State Senator Wendy Davis is running for governor.   The election is 13 months away but it is on! 

Let me say something nice about her:  She is a bright lady with a good personal story.   I will add that most Texans did not know much about her until the abortion filibuster a few months ago.

Miss Davis' basic problem is that she running for governor in the wrong state.  

In her first speech, Miss Davis delivered the usual Democrat talking points, i.e. "the GOP is the party of the rich," "we need more investments in education and our quality of life," "we can do better" etc.

Miss Davis' chief problem is that Texans can read between the lines. "Investments in education" means more power to the teachers' public union and higher taxes. 

William Murchison knows a lot about Texas and he has a few thoughts about this campaign:     

"Sen. Davis would surmount these philosophical roadblocks... how? Through inflicting Texans with higher taxes and stricter regulations?

Could she really bring off such a feat in such a state?

The lady aims, apparently, to urge bigger and bigger bucks for Texas's just so-so system of public education: without explaining thus far what she intends to buy with such extra cash as the legislature might grant in new taxes."

Last, but not least, Senator Davis will get a lot of money from liberal groups and the national media will give her a free ride.  However, they loved Anne Richards too and it got here nowhere against George W Bush in 1994.

We don't say "final" until the game is over.  However, it does not look good because Miss Davis is a very liberal lady running in a very conservative state.
