Sen. Ted Cruz says Wendy Davis Does Not Represent Majority of Texans
from Texas Tribune:
Cruz: Despite filibuster, Texas opposes abortion (The Associated Press): "Firebrand U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz said Friday that most Texans still oppose abortion, despite the national stir caused by a Democratic filibuster 'and a handful of protesters' in the state Senate this week that blocked a sweeping bill to further limit the procedure. The tea party darling addressed the National Right to Life Conference in suburban Dallas. He was such a hit that when Cruz strode through a side door moments before he was scheduled to speak, the person on stage had to stop as the crowd cheered and climbed to their feet. Once at the microphone, Cruz called what happened in the state Legislature 'a battle.' 'If you listen to the media those rowdy protesters were adopting the popular view,' he said. 'Yet the simple reality is, 62 percent of Texans oppose late-term abortions.'"
