Letters to the Editor/Mtg on Wednesday

The Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram printed some slanted articles on Sunday about Wendy Davis. Below are some key messages summarized from Battleground Texas response.

If you’d like to make your voice heard on these issues, a good way to do that is to write a letter to the editor of the Dallas Morning News. Member Prissy Wisnewski summarizes below how to do that. Member Barb Walters is having a meeting at her house Wednesday evening at 6:30 to help get the word out. Email [email protected] for more details and directions.0

Key Messages:

  • It’s no surprise that Greg Abbott and his allies are launching personal attacks against Wendy Davis and her family.  Anytime Wendy demonstrates her strength and growing support, they try to tear her down.
  • Texans are beginning to unite around Wendy.  She has generated more support and has raised more money from more people than Abbott or anyone else.  It’s scaring them, and they’re lashing out.
  • Wendy is a strong courageous woman with a moving and inspirational personal story.  Greg Abbott doesn’t get it and doesn’t want to get it.  He just cannot identify with the struggles of a single parent in Texas.
  • Wendy’s Texas success story threatens and scares Abbott and the Austin insiders, so I expect them to get even nastier and take their campaign as far into the gutter as we’ve seen in a very long time.
  • Greg Abbott and his allies are trying to take Wendy Davis’ personal story away. This is a malicious and cowardly act motivated by fear. This is what he would prefer voters focus on rather than answer substantive questions.
  • This attack is downright offensive to women, especially to Texas women who share this story.
