A response from Senator Wendy Davis:
From Senator Wendy Davis, on June 27, 2013:
"I am humbled and honored by the thousands and thousands of messages of support I have received from Texans and our friends around the nation. What happened yesterday was a victory for the people of Texas – but our fight isn't over yet. Less than 24 hours after our filibuster, Governor Perry has once again chosen the low road of partisanship over the common good by calling a second special session. I have no doubt that our state's failed leadership will do everything they can to thwart the will of the majority of Texans and pass this harmful bill that we have worked so hard to defeat. But the voices of Texas inspired me last night, and I stand ready for another fight. I hope you will continue to stand with me."
