Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis can’t seem to catch a break.
And now Democratic Governors Association Chairman Peter Shumlin has made it clear he is not very optimistic about Davis' chances in Texas.
“We’re hopeful in Texas but we all understand that Democrats haven’t won Texas in a long time,” Shumlin said Tuesday, as quoted by RealClearPolitics. “We hope this will be our year.”
That’s not exactly a statement of boundless confidence.
“I wish that we could spend money for Democrats in all 50 states,” Shumlin said. “My job is not to promote governors’ races in states where we can’t win.”
Sounds like the DGA is telling Davis: “You’re on your own.”
