Wendy Davis goes negative with despicable ad on opponent’s disability

Wendy Davis

Gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis seems to have realized that her pro-abortion platform has failed to capture the attention of Texans and she’s stooped to a new low in her desperation to win. She has spent much of her time rushing ridiculous attacks at her opponent, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. Because Abbott has a squeaky clean record (unlike Davis), Wendy has stooped to attacking him for being disabled. Watch her new ad here:

Supporters of Davis, who is down in the polls by high-single to low-double digits, have argued that this is her ‘Hail Wendy’ pass in a last-ditch effort to secure votes. But politicians on both sides of party lines are questioning her level of desperation in the face of this horrendous personal attack.

Anyone who watched Davis filibuster a bill last summer that protects pain-capable, late-term unborn children from excruciating abortions can easily explain this low-blow from the Davis campaign; they don’t expect a woman who vehemently opposes innocent life to have any scruples about attacking the disabled (or anyone else, for that matter).
