I doubt that there are very many members of this forum who would consider voting for her, but Wendy Davis is not a friend of the 2nd Amendment. I would urge ALL members to consider whether their vote in 2014 will put Wendy Davis closer to winning against Greg Abbott. . . . .most particularly to those of us who are currently disenchanted with the republican leadership at the national level.
Recent polling suggests that there is a 15 pt difference between Abbot and Davis, with 15% undecided: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_gube ... #Polling_2. THAT's how critical this is.
PLEASE take this into account. Kathy Glass, the libertarian candidate, may be a worthy person, but she has no chance of winning. None at all. The only thing she will do is take votes away from Abbot. Right now, she's not really registering in the polls, although she was showing 5% back in late October. Any points she gains will likely detract from Abbott rather than Davis.
Greg Abbot is a strong defender of gun rights. His website says (http://www.gregabbott.com/issues/):
We need a strong pro-gun governor who can and will mop the floor with Wendy Davis. I'm not voting the party, I'm voting the man. I urge you to do the same.Greg Abbott believes the right to keep and bear arms was settled in 1791 when the 2nd Amendment was adopted to the U.S. Constitution. On behalf of 31 states, Attorney General Abbott championed a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision (District of Columbia v. Heller) that struck down a handgun ban and protected an individual’s right to bear arms.
Greg Abbott continues to protect 2nd Amendment rights by preparing to challenge potential federal laws that limit gun rights. He was also one of the first Attorneys General in America to challenge the Obama Administration’s efforts to use the United Nations to regulate guns in the United States.
As an avid hunter and member of the Texas State Rifle Association and National Rifle Association, Greg Abbott will continue to fight any federal government overreach that aims to disrupt the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding Texans.
