“It’s a new day” in Texas as Konni Burton was sworn in today as a new state senator representing the 10th district — a seat once held by failed Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis:

From her Facebook page:

Good morning! Today at noon is the swearing in ceremony! Thank you again, for this honor of representing you! It’s a new day and because of that, I wanted to step out and represent that in a visible way. No more pink shoe drama for SD 10!

And when she says “no more pink shoe drama,” she really means it.

Check out the boots that will be replacing Wendy Daivs’s now infamous abortion-filibuster pink sneakers:

“Stand for life.” Awesome.



Don’t look now, but will Konni Burton make Wendy Davis loss even sweeter? Boy, THIS should do it!
