In a few weeks, Texans will head to the polls and cast their votes for governor. Candidate and State Senator Wendy Davis truly believes the Lone Star State could go blue come November.
Davis shot to national prominence last year when she stood for eleven straight hours in her pink sneakers, filibustering an anti-abortion bill.
In her new book, “Forgetting to be Afraid,” Davis shares details of her personal life, from her mother’s mental illness to her decision to terminate two pregnancies for medical reasons.
Fusion’s Alicia Menendez spoke with the senator to find out why she decided to publish such an intimate memoir so close to election day, the political landscape in Texas, and who she thinks are the key players in this coming election.
