Interview with State Sen. Wendy Davis

Sen. Wendy Davis

I didn’t have the room in my schedule during the TDP convention to contemplate trying to arrange a bunch of interviews, but if there was one person I hadn’t spoken to this cycle that I really wanted to it was State Sen. Wendy Davis. Elected in 2008 in a red-leaning district, Sen. Davis quickly established herself as a force to be reckoned with in the upper chamber. She has been a tireless advocate on behalf of people and issues that don’t get much attention in Austin, working this past session to pass bills to facilitate clearing the backlog of untested rape kits and to rein in payday lenders, and has also been a powerful voice for women’s issues. It’s fair to say she’s the Republicans’ #1 target in the state for this fall – they tried to tilt the field in their favor during redistricting but retreated in the interim map, in which SD10 closely resembles her current district. It will be another tough battle, but Sen. Davis is up to the task. Here’s the interview:

The interview I did with her in 2008 is here, in case you want to compare Candidate Davis to Senator Davis. Both were done in public locations during the convention, this one in the George R. Brown Convention Center atrium, that one in a restaurant somewhere in Austin (I don’t remember which), so each has some background noise, though this one was quieter. I count myself as a big fan of Sen. Davis and I see her re-election as vital. I support her and I hope you will as well.
