After falsifying her story about her perilous struggles as a single mother, Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis apparently wants to win back favor. But her sudden double-mindedness is unlikely to convince Republicans or keep Democrats on her side.
Last week, Davis came out in favor of open-carry gun laws in Texas, although she had formerly expressed support for stricter gun laws. Yesterday she said she would support a 20-week ban on abortion as long as women and doctors had more power to define the exceptions to the legislation, despite the fact that last June she spent 13 hours in her pretty pink running shoes filibustering the same 20-week ban.
