Senator Wendy Davis Will Be On Anderson Cooper 360 tonight 7 PM CT/8 PM ET

Thank you.

After getting a few hours of quality sleep last night, it is even more evident that together, we have started something incredible.

From the masses of people at the Capitol until early this morning to the hundreds of thousands watching our filibuster online, we have shown Governor Rick Perry and the failed leadership in Austin that we will not be silenced.

It is because of your determination and dedication that we were able to stop this horrible legislation from being passed last night. Unfortunately, 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 worked so hard to defeat. But we have shown them that this time, they will have to listen to us.

Thank you so much for all of your words of encouragement, support, and tireless hard work.

Your friend, and proudly your state senator,


P.S. I hope you will tune into Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN tonight at 7 PM CT/8 PM ET to hear me talk about our filibuster.

Latest Email from Senator Wendy Davis: Received @ 3:17 am

I have amazing news!

Just moments ago, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst announced to the Senate that SB5 is officially dead! Evidently, Governor Perry and the legislative leadership can hear our voices.

This amazing feat is because of you. I wanted to share this wonderful news as soon as I could.

Thank you so much for all of your encouragement, support, hard work, and most of all dedication and determination.

It is a great night for women and families in Texas and our allies across the country.

Your friend and, proudly, your State Senator,


And Thank You, WENDY! We are ALL so proud of you and honored that you represent Tarrant County and the rest of Texas!

But for now go home and get some sleep. Stay Strong so you can continue to Fight for Another Day.

Email From Senator Wendy Davis: Received @ 2:02 am

Wow. What a day.

I cannot believe the amazing outpouring of support and encouragement that you delivered over the course of my 12 1/2 hour filibuster on the Senate floor.

This may seem hard to believe but I only have a few additional words to share at this time. First, I want to say an incredible and heartfelt thank you to the ten of thousands of Texans and Americans that offered their support and wishes of kindness throughout the day. Your presence at the capitol and your calls, emails, Facebook messages and tweets have sustained us and gave me the opportunity to make your voice heard.

Most importantly, I simply have no words to express my gratitude to those who lent their voice in the over 12,000 personal stories that you bravely and selflessly shared with me to object to this dangerous legislation.

Although I was the one with the microphone on the floor of the Senate today, it was your voice and your words – it was your filibuster.

Now we can’t fool ourselves. Governor Perry and the legislative leadership see their own political livelihood tied to denying women their full rights to make their own health decisions, and they won’t stop here.

I will admit I am a bit tired. But I’m ready to keep fighting and assure you I won’t stop. And, without a doubt I know you will never stop fighting for the Texas we love.

Thank you with all my heart and we will be back to fight another day.

Your friend and, proudly, your State Senator,


WTG WENDY, You Did An Incredible Job and We Support You 110% :appluase:

** Help Support Senator Wendy Davis: Send Her Your Stories So She Can Continue Filibuster **

She could use your stories so she can continue the fight with the truth on her side. She truly is an amazing woman and Fort Worth and Tarrant County has fought hard for her to continue to fight for us.

And Thank You Former Chairman Steve Maxwell and our New Chairwoman Deborah Peoples. Without their efforts on GOTV for Wendy we would probably have a sleazy republicant.
