Wendy Davis’ open-carry announcment may cost her any chance of winning

It is mid February. If this campaign doesn’t get back on track soon, it’s over. We’ve sacrificed another Democrat to a nonexistent “persuadable Republican,” when all we had to do is excite the base in urban areas and South Texas.

I feel sure her campaign is telling her, “What’s your base going to do? Vote for Abbot? They won’t do that because he’s worse for them than you are.” No, they won’t vote for Abbott. They just won’t vote — and that is the worst thing you can do to Texas.

Your base is running away, Wendy. You better find where they are going so you can lead them there.
