Wendy Davis Explains Texas Politics on The Daily Show

By

Texas State Senator Wendy Davis stopped by The Daily Show at the tail end of the gubernatorial race to explain a few things about Texas politics. Despite the disheartening state of things (women's clinics closing, voter registration laws, flagging poll numbers), Davis remains staunchly optimistic, simply saying: “I'm going to be the governor, Jon."

If this isn't enough Wendy (is it ever?,) here's an extended ten-minute interview — but be warned, at least five of those minutes are dedicated to long stretches of applause between every comment she makes.
