Is it cause for Republicans to be concerned? New numbers show Democratic Gubernatorial Hopeful Wendy Davis nay be out fundraising Republican Hopeful Greg Abbott at this point.
At least one expert said it shows Davis is a more appealing candidate to Democrats than those of the past decade or so.
"Wendy Davis is someone who is more charasmatic--and has a message that is more appealing to Democratic donors here in the Lone Star State--and also nationwide" said Rice University Political Science Department Chair Mark Jones.
On the other hand--Jones told 550 KTSA News the latest cash numbers will send a strong message to Abbott's backers.
"He'll be able to sy look--she's raising some serious money. If I'm going to not only win--but also win by a large margin such that I can dampen Democratic enthusiasm for 2018--I'm going to need your support" Jones said.
