With her horrible new ad against Greg Abbott, Wendy Davis has proven that there is no depth to which she will not sink in order to win the governorship.
Abbott’s campaign pulled no punches with its response:
More from The Dallas Morning News:
Abbott spokeswoman Amelia Chasse said Davis’ ad misleads by equating Abbott’s defense of the 2003 lawsuit limits with a defense of Baylor Regional or Duntsch, which she said he was not doing.
“It is challenging to find language strong enough to condemn Sen. Davis’ disgusting television ad, which represents a historic low for someone seeking to represent Texans,” Chasse said. “Sen. Davis’ ad shows a disturbing lack of judgment from a desperate politician, and completely disqualifies her from seeking higher office in Texas.”
From My San Antonio:
“It’s offensive … It shows the tenor of the campaign,” Abbott said during an exclusive interview with the San Antonio Express- News. “If you look at my ads, I focused on what I’m going to be doing as governor, and my opponent spends all her time in ads attacking me, as I’m attacking the challenges that fellow Texans deal with.”
Abbott, the state attorney general, lost the use of his legs after his spine was crushed when a tree fell on him while jogging in 1984.
“It’s her choice if she wants to attack a guy in a wheelchair. I don’t think it’s going to sell too well,” Abbott added.
