Today, Burnt Orange Report is teaming up with over 30 blogs from all over Texas and across the country to urge one thing:
Donate to Wendy Davis's campaign for Texas Governor.
Why give to Wendy Davis?
- Because our kids deserve the best education possible, and our public schools and teachers need more funding to be competitive, not $5.4 billion in cuts.
Because women are equal to men and Texas needs a Governor who not only agrees but is willing to sign legislation that affirms this basic fact.
Because as Wendy herself said, “quid pro quo has become the status quo,” and Texans don't benefit when contracts, grants, and appointments are handed out as favors to donors.
Because Texas can do better than being ranked near the bottom of high school graduation rates and near the top of cancer-causing pollutants in our water and air.
If you donate to Wendy Davis, you give our best hope at winning statewide the best opportunity to run a strong, hard campaign that has the resources she needs to win.
