Before any true goal can be realized, it must first be visualized, idealized, and then actualized.
Finally, we have the official news. Directly from the Wendy Davis campaign…
“I have decided to run for governor of the great state of Texas.
As Texans, we believe that with hard work, determination, and a little old-fashioned common sense, we can build a better future for ourselves and our families.
We can make our communities safer, create jobs, and get Texas moving in the right direction.
I realize that we have a challenging road ahead. But after talking with my family, my friends, and my closest supporters — I am convinced this is the right decision.”
And just like that, we have a real Governor’s race in the state of Texas.
Today’s big announcement is certainly no surprise to Texas Leftist, but it’s still a big deal and something to be celebrated. I wrote back in February that Wendy Davis was the best hope for Texas Democrats at the Governor’s office… long before her mid-summer filibuster took the nation by storm. I saw the passion that she inspires in Texas Democrats from hearing her speak at the 2010 Democratic State Convention… I didn’t even know who she was then, but I knew that the person I was seeing and hearing was special. So today’s events may not be a surprise, but they still mean something. They mean that finally, Democrats are coming out of the wilderness, and are on the road to take Texas back.
