Who Is Wendy Davis?
For those of us who had never heard of Wendy Davis before (including me), not only was the act of filibustering destined to inspire us all, but her whole life story was just as impressive. Pregnant and single at nineteen-years-old, Davis worked her way through community college, transferred to Texas Christian University (where she was valedictorian), and then went to Harvard Law School, where she graduated with honors. Davis has held her seat in notoriously conservative Torrant County since 2008, when she unseated a heavily favorited Republican incumbent. To sum up, Wendy Davis is awesome.
