Perry Attacks Davis Personally

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) "gave a spirited defense of Republican proposals to curtail abortions" while criticizing state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), whose filibuster earlier this week helped kill the legislation, in unusually personal terms, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Said Perry: "I'm proud that she has been able to take advantage of her intellect and her hard work, but she didn't come from particularly good circumstances. What if her mom had said, 'You know, I just can't do this, I don't want to do this.' At that particular point and time, it becomes very personal for us."

Davis, who was raised by a single mother, said his statement was "without dignity and tarnishes the high office he holds."
