Davis Raises Nearly $1 Million Following Her Filibuster
It appears State Sen. Wendy Davis’s filibuster did more than temporarily derail the abortion bill.
It also sparked a fundraising frenzy that netted her $933,000 in the final two weeks of June.
That means Davis, a Fort Worth Democrat, has more than one million dollars in the bank as she considers whether to run for governor.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott meanwhile collected $4.78 million during the final two weeks of June and has more than $20 million available for his campaign.
Here’s the breakdown in donations provided by Davis’ office:
