Last night Republicans in the Legislature affirmed their priorities -- appealing to Republican primary voters, onthe backs of Texas women.
We have lost a battle. However the fight for our future is just beginning.
Swift passage of this bill was a foregone conclusion just one month ago. And then you got involved.
Texans from every corner of the state came to the Capitol again and again. You refused to be silent. You refused to give up.
That's exactly the dedication and passion it's going to take to Turn Texas Blue.Republicans think we're going to give up. That by 2014, Texas women and their families will forget that HB2passed, that Governor Perry vetoed fair pay for women, and that Republicans stopped Medicaid expansion inTexas.
"Some here today will believe that this fight has been waged -- and won -- with this final vote. They are wrongin so many ways. The fight for the future of Texas is just beginning." -- Wendy DavisThank you for your fight and your voice.
