This will be a very short one but I wanted to say congrats to State Senator and gubernatorial candidate, Wendy Davis (D. TX):


State Senator Wendy Davis captured the imagination not just of her fellow Texans but of the nation in June, when she put on her now-famous sneakers to filibuster for eleven hours against anti-choice legislation. Despite a massive “Stand With Wendy” outpouring of popular support, the Republicans eventually got their way, after Texas Governor Rick Perry and his allies called the legislature back into session. But perhaps not for long: Davis is running an insurgent Democratic campaign that says it’s time for the home state of Ann Richards to elect another pro-choice governor. - The Nation, 12/18/13

As a way of congratulating Davis, please do consider donating or getting involed with her campaign:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      It is interesting that not necessarily here - although I may miss some diaries, but someone in TX continues to post on what is called the most popular website in the US.  
       It pays to show up!    

       Today's installment was her poking at Abbott on education - which he says he can't comment on cuz: litigation pending against him.   Well, okey doke, but that never should stop anyone here in TX to hesitate from taking a swipe at his miserable record.

        Reminder:  of the millions of Texans missing out on Affordable Health Care - 57% are Hispanic.    And we have a DEM Lt. Gov Candidate who is very well respected throughout  the State than can send that message loud and clear.  I'm looking forward to 2 women at the top of Texas legislature in 2014.
