Democrat Running to Replace Wendy Davis Releases Web Ad

Libby Willis, the Democrat running to replace Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis in the Texas Senate, released a web ad Friday on Battleground Texas' Vimeo account.

Libby Willis, the Democrat running to replace Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis in the Texas Senate, released a web ad Friday on Battleground Texas' Vimeo account. 

In the ad, Willis alleges that her opponent, Republican Konni Burton, would have voted against the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas that was passed almost unanimously by the Senate in 2013. The fund, approved by Texas voters later in 2013, authorized transferring $2 billion from the state's Rainy Day Fund to create a new loan program that funds state water plan projects. 

Willis called the fund a “common sense” solution that can result from politicians, regardless of their political affiliation, working together.

"This days, it seems like some people just want to play politics," Willis says. “I couldn’t care less where the idea comes from or who gets the credit. I just want to get things done."

Senate District 10 has been, historically, a competitive district. Davis won by just a little more than 2 percent of the vote in 2012.
