Last night, Wendy Davis spoke to a huge crowd in Austin to celebrate the anniversary of her filibuster. I met the political director of Battleground Texas at the event & promised a diary, so here it is. if you want to skip the pictures & fangirling, and just help us turn Texas blue, you can do that right here: Battleground Texas: What Will You Do?

Here's a crowd shot from Austin:

Of course everyone was thrilled. She was in full-on campaign mode - there's an article from the Texas Tribune here: On Filibuster Anniversary, Davis Targets GOP "Insiders"

Here's something that must have been making the rounds last year but I missed it. It so covers Wendy's feisty attitude:

Our Lieutenant Governor candidate, State Senator Leticia Van dePute, she of the "At What Point" quote, also spoke -- and wow she is good. Senators Kirk Watson and Senfronia Thompson also spoke -- and can I just say we have the people who know how to fire up a crowd.

So whether you're in Texas or not, how about helping us out, right here: Battleground Texas: What Will You Do?

here is a good pic -- all the pics are from Battleground's twitter feed, as short as I am, I don't try to get pics at events like this -- of Wendy & Leticia:

I hope everyone saw the segment earlier this week on the surprisingly easy way to turn Georgia blue -- voter registration. Here is is in case you missed it:

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.
