Sen. Wendy Davis Ready To Stand Again
Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:14 PM CDT
Just minutes after Governor Rick Perry took shots at Wendy Davis, she is throwing back her own punches.
Speaking to a group of anti-abortion advocates Perry used Davis as a reason to vote for a new abortion bill in the Texas Legislature's upcoming second special session.
Gov. Perry stopped short of using her name, but said, "In fact even the woman who filibustered the senate the other day, was born into difficult circumstances. She was the daughter of a single woman. She was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard law school and serve in the Texas Senate. It's just unfortunate that she hasn't learned from her own example."
"I believe that it demeans the high office that he holds to make a personal statement like that," said Davis.
Davis and the Democrat's motives have been called into question. Specifically the final 15 minutes of the special session.
"I think it's shameful to call democracy in action a mob tactic," said Davis. "The people who were here have really been fed up watching what's happened by the Governor and the Lieutenant Governor's actions."
Davis says although she is still reeling from what happened Tuesday night, her focus now is on the second special session.
"I'm talking with my colleagues, I've already had some phone conversations with them today and we'll be doing some planning and trying to get ready for our work on Monday," said Davis.
She told KEYE TV the people of Texas need to continue to have their voices heard.
"I'm going to be fascinated to see whether there is a long termed sustained response to this," said Davis. "I think there will be, I think that Texans have woken up to the failed leadership that we have in Texas right now."
KEYE TV asked Davis if it comes down to a filibuster once again, can she handle 13 more hours on her feet.
"Oh, if I have to absolutely," said Davis.
The second special session beings July 1.
