Substance needed

All the letters about Wendy Davis seem to have been drawn from the same list of talking points.

First, her exaggerations aren’t that bad, followed by an ad hominem attack on Greg Abbott and the settlement for his injury.

No one mentioned Davis’ legislative accomplishments. It seems that the highlight of her time in Austin comes down to two filibusters.

While I am still undecided on this election, I am going to need more than a hyped-up life story and a penchant to filibuster to vote for a candidate. Media darling or not, I need substance not style, else we will have Ted Cruz in Austin “full of sound and fury signifying nothing.”
