I’ve learned that I’m at my best when I’m fighting for people...because it isn’t personal achievements or failures that create change, it’s working together to fight for what matters.” - Wendy Davis Wendy Davis is a Democratic candidate for Texas Congressional District 21 which stretches from Austin to San Antonio.
