Mitt Romney won Texas with 57% of the vote.
Wendy Davis’s quixotic campaign for Texas governor is getting more and more like some awful reality show, where everything goes wrong and the candidate can’t help making gaffe after gaffe.
Wendy’s latest jaw dropper: Texas isn’t really a red state.
Wendy Davis told the Austin American-Statesman newspaper on Wednesday that “Texas is not really a red state, it’s just a non-voting state.”
Sure Wendy, sure.
Well, she is right about Texas being a non-voting state. Texas is one of the worst performers when it comes to voter turnout. In 2010, just 36.4 percent of registered voters actually voted, making it the worst state for turnout. In 2012, Texas ranked 48th in voter turnout, according to a report from the University of Texas at Austin.
