|Today Brains and Eggs is teaming up with over 30 blogs from all over Texas and across the country to urge readers to do one thing: |
Donate to Wendy Davis's campaign for Texas Governor.
Why give to Wendy Davis?
Because our kids deserve the best education possible, and our public schools and teachers need more funding to be competitive, not $5.4 billion in cuts.
Because women are equal to men and Texas needs a governor who not only agrees but is willing to sign legislation that affirms this basic fact.
Because as Wendy herself said, "quid pro quo has become the status quo," and Texans don't benefit when contracts, grants, and appointments are handed out as favors to donors.
Because Texas can do better than being ranked near the bottom of high school graduation rates and near the top of cancer-causing pollutants in our water and air.
If you donate to Wendy Davis, you give her the best opportunity to run a strong, hard campaign that has the resources she needs to win.
Make sure Wendy Davis has what she needs to run the best campaign possible. Give to Wendy Davis today.

What does your gift mean to her campaign?
In my almost-25 years in politics and government, I’ve never seen anything in Texas like the excitement for Wendy Davis.
We all know -- yes, even Republicans, in the darkest place of their hardest hearts -- that Texans need Wendy Davis in the governor's mansion. We need to give her the resources she needs to run the best campaign possible.
Please Give to Wendy Today.
Just wanted to shoot y'all a quick note of thanks for helping with our blograiser this week. We pulled in over $18K -- the ActBlue page raised $12,275 and the email DailyKos sent raised $5858 on a separate page. Plus, there were $185 in monthly recurring donations so that should bring in another $2000 or so over the course of the campaign, so all told we've collectively boosted Wendy's coffers by a potential $20K!!
Wow! Thank you to the TX bloggers and others who joined @BOR for #GiveToWendy. Because of your help we're off to a huge start! #TeamWendy
