Senator Wendy Davis has released her first television commercial of her reelection campaign entitled, "Doors." The ad focuses on Davis' compelling life story and how education gave her a door of opportunity to excel in life. "Education made all the difference for me," Davis says in the ad. "I'll never stop fighting until every child in Texas has those same opportunities."
Davis, who married young and was a single mom by 19, understands that education is the silver bullet for struggling Americans to rise up in life. Education is how those facing hard times can see their dreams met, and Senator Davis understands that plight. She understands that assault on public education is an assault on equal opportunity, and that is why her presence in the Capitol is essential in stopping the Perry/Dewhurst plans to defund education. They believe that by defunding public education, they are defunding the Texas left. In reality, they are making classes overcrowded and less productive, and firing good and hardworking educators.
Senator Davis is in the midst of a tough race, and she needs the full support and aid of Texas progressives to keep doing great work in Austin.
