“We have a great grassroots movement, and that’s what did it.” Texas Tribune, June 22, 2012
That article by the TT was also published in the New York Times. Take a look!
The author points out that Dr. Campbell was out-spent by both of her opponents, but she garnered enough votes to win her place in the July 31, 2012 runoff against incumbent Jeff Wentworth.
Senator Wentworth is quoted in this article as saying he wants to consolidate support from those who don’t want SD 25 leadership to leave Bexar County, while at the same time he hopes to win over voters from outside of Bexar County.
The dichotomy is not that hard for Wentworth, who calls himself “pro-life” because he doesn’t approve of abortion in the 3rd trimester. 24 weeks or 6 months? During second trimester, abortion is just fine with Jeff.
