How We Felt When We Saw Wendy Davis's Fundraising Reports, In Animated GIFs

by: Katherine Haenschen

Tue Jan 14, 2014 at 09:07 PM CST

The reports are in, and Wendy Davis outraised Greg Abbott $12.2 million to $11.5 million from July 1 to December 31 across her three fundraising committees!

The stats from Wendy's report are impressive: 85% of her 84,704 individual donations were under 50%, as over  71,843 people supported her campaign. She has donors from all 254 counties in Texas, and in-state money makes up 70% of her haul.

Minutes after Wendy's expectation-besting report was released, Greg Abbott's team announced his haul: $11.5 million over the same six-month period.

Well then. Below the jump, find out how our BOR staff reacted to the news, as depicted in animated GIFs.  


When we got the news that Wendy Davis raised $12.2 million across all three committees since July 1, we were all:

That's way higher than the $10 million that was initially anticipated from the Davis campaign.

Then Abbott's total came out. $11.5 million. Wait, did Wendy out-raise Abbott during the 6 months in which they were directly competing for gubernatorial cash??


Every-blogger dance!

Even the haterz and the skeptics seemed impressed, based on the way the news took off like lightning on Twitter.

While pundits want to count Wendy Davis out and fail to appreciate the enthusiasm she inspires in Texans who want a better future for all of us, those of us who believe in Wendy know what this report is finally showing everyone else...
