- Wendy Davis – Wendy Davis' campaign for Governor of Texas is one of the most exciting opportunities for the multiracial majority to turn Texas blue. We have backed Wendy Davis since 2012 before she gained national prominence for her gutsy filibuster of anti-choice legislation. Wendy champions quality education and health care. Her campaign is historic because it has ignited energy, resources, and attention towards turning Texas blue at every level of government.
