The Democratic Gubernatorial hopeful spends Martin Luther King, Junior Day in San Antonio--but raises eyebrows with what she didn't say
"Today was such an inspiring day" said Wendy Davis after taking part in San Antonio's March in honor of the murdered Civil Rights leader. However, amid all of the questions swirling around her past, Davis' handlers told 550 KTSA News they would only discuss the MLK event--and would step in if the conversation turned to the campaign.
Political watchers say it's a case of hoping a controversy will simply go away.
"I suspect they didn't have the time to fully think about what their response should be" said Rice University Political Science Department Chair Mark Jones. He told 550 KTSA News
Davis' Campaign later put out a statement blaming Republican Greg Abbott for what they're calling attacks on her personal story. The questions began with a recent Dallas Morning News article whic said Davis divorced at the age of 21--even though she had sworn under oath that she divorced at 19. The reporter who wrote the article said he has never had contact with Abbott--or anyone from Abbott's Campaign on the story.
