Dust off those pink running shoes! It’s on, everybody!

Watch out, Chip Roy. Wendy Davis is comin’ for you:

Early Monday morning, Davis announced her candidacy for the Democratic nomination in Central Texas’ 21st District. She is challenging U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, a freshman Republican from Austin.

She made her intentions known in a biographical video, narrated in part with archival footage from her late father, Jerry Russell.

She has to do this, you guys. It’s for the children.

No, she really said that:

“I’m running for Congress because people’s voices are still being silenced,” she said. “I’m running for our children and grandchildren, so they can live and love and fight for change themselves.”

She’s definitely a joke. Hell, she’s a walking punchline.
