Wendy Davis for Governor of Texas

Wendy Davis, who earlier this year filibustered in the Texas State Senate against a law that radically restricts abortion rights, announced Thursday that she is a candidate for governor.

And yes, I know she is the longest of longshots in a state that is undergoing a demographic transformation which will eventually move it to the Left, but which is still solidly conservative.

But she has my undoubtedly highly-influential endorsement.

Update: The usual suspects on the Right react about as you’d expect.
