The Wendy Davis campaign is off and running. Monday, the Fort Worth Democrat was in San Antonio to talk about why she wants to be the next governor of Texas.

In Monday’s Capital Tonight, we sat down with Sen. Davis for an extended interview. She talked about education funding, party labels, gun rights and her plan to lead the state.


Since Sen. Davis’s announcement, only one other Democrat has declared a run for statewide office. The Quorum Report‘s Harvey Kronberg joined us to talk about how the rest of the ticket could shape up for those hoping to turn the state blue.


As the governor’s race heats up, so does another competition. Candidates running in the House District 50 race have been busy reaching out to registered voters. We looked at their efforts to get people to the polls in a state where turnout is traditionally low.
