  •  I think you're fundamentally misreading (7+ / 0-)

    the article, which is talking about how Davis's actions and star power, and this bill, have lit up the Democratic activist base and the grassroots involvement in the Democratic party of Texas which had seemed very lackluster if not dead in recent years.

    Battleground Texas is also in the midst of spending 36 million dollars on a project to turn the state blue through voter registration and modernizing GOTV efforts.

    •  Yeah, I know about Battleground Texas (0+ / 0-)

      I will be interesting as to whether they show any results. I'd say it's too soon to tell.

      I have to say, I've always been negative about Texas...it's the place where Democratic dreams go to die. But maybe this time I'm wrong. It's possible Davis will inspire the grassroots like this articles says...or it's possible she will have little effect at all, even if she runs. Time will tell.

      How much have they spent in previous years? 36m sounds like a decent amount even for a big state like Texas.
