Alicia Menendez spoke to Texas gubernatorial candidate and State Senator Wendy Davis about her upcoming election.
When Menendez asked Davis what role the governor hopeful thinks independent female voters will play in the November election, Davis said, “I hope women are paying attention to what’s going on in our state.”
From equal pay for equal work legislation to women’s health issues, Davis said she believes Texan women will and should take a vested interest in the upcoming election.
“I think there are a lot of people who want a legitimately private life even if they want to engage in public service,” Menendez told Davis wondering why her call to public service outweighed her desire to avoid a public stage.
“Sometimes you just get so wrapped up in something that you forget to be afraid,” Davis told Menendez. “If you’re fighting for something that you believe in, it’s worth it.”
Senator Davis will face off against Republican opponent Attorney General Greg Abbott on November 4.
