Is Texas Ready For A Democrat? Wendy Davis To Announce For Governor.

Get customized DC Decoder updates. In 2010, Perry easily defeated Democrat Bill White, with 55.1 percent of the vote to Mr. Whites 42.4 percent. Davis will likely face off against GOP favorite and conservative stalwart Attorney General Gregg Abbott, who has already raised more than $20 million for his campaign. While Davis has been moving around the country since her filibuster in a fundraising effort , her best efforts might not add up.Democrats outside the state are unlikely to invest in Texas elections, Professor Jillison says. Though Jillison estimates that Davis will raise $20 million this could become pocket change in comparison to what Republicans will likely offer Abbot's campaign. If it becomes apparent that Davis is a real threat to http://macvrsj.blogs.experienceproject.com/2270021.html the GOP nominee, a host of Republican donors will be on stand-by to write more checks to bolster Abbott's campaign, he says.

Texas Sued Over Abortion Law Wendy Davis Tried To Block

Air quality declines as some http://www.zimbio.com/General/articles/lo_6z-Jc9oI/Biting+Hand+Feeds+Farrah+Abraham+Writing+Takedown wells flare off gases, and heavyweight rigs and water-hauling trucks destroy back-country roads.But most of all, locals want the frackers to use less water. About two-thirds of the water used in a fracking operation remains underground after drilling. The remaining third that comes back to the surface has to be removed from the site and treated if it is to be used elsewhere. Often its fed into a disposal well. Some states, including Colorado, require recycling of all fracking water ejected from the well. Texas has added incentives to encourage drillers to recycle, butdoes not mandate it. The oil and gas industry is moving very quickly to develop recycling and other injection options, according to David Burnett, director of technology at Texas A&Ms Global Petroleum Research Institute. Recycling trucks are now wending their way down caliche country roads in Dimmit County and elsewhere.

Missing 12-year-old Texas girl found safe at Mexican restaurant

local time Saturday after police officers received a phone call saying she was at the restaurant. Officers arrived, found the girl, and took her to the police department to be interviewed. It was not immediately clear who made the initial call informing police of her location, and authorities would not immediately discuss the circumstances surrounding Adrienne's disappearance. Solorzano had previously been seen leaving her portable classroom at Bradenburg Middle School in Garland, Texas to meet her father and a teacher to discuss recent grades in the main school building, MyFoxDFW.com reports.

David Dewhurst to Texas GOP: Don?t get complacent

The Bobcats, who entered with the nation's fourth-best rushing defense at 62 yards per game, outgained Wyoming 256-64 on the ground. Brandon Miller rushed for a pair of scores for Wyoming (3-2), which lost to a Sun Belt Conference team for the first time in seven games. Quarterback Brett Smith, who became the Cowboys' all-time touchdown pass leader last week, was 25-of-48 for 292 yards and a touchdown - the 61st of his career. The game was tied 7-7 when it was halted with 8:34 remaining in the second quarter - the third time a Wyoming game has been interrupted by thunderstorms this season. Jones found Ben Ijah for a 26-yard TD pass with 29 seconds left in the first half to make it 14-14 and start a string of 28 straight points for Texas State. After a three-and-out on its first possession of the third quarter, Lowe's second touchdown run - a 5-yarder - was followed by TD runs of 22 and 5 yards by Nutall to give the Bobcats a 35-14 lead with 13:11 left.

Texas Man Destroys Yachts in Seattle Marina, Claims Asian Female Ninja Trying to Kill Him

Rick Perry (R) this summer, are designed to protect women's health and safety. The law also bans most abortions after 20 weeks free of pregnancy and requires all abortions to be performed in ambulatory surgical centers. The surgical center requirement was the most controversial aspect of the bill, because opponents argued that it could shut down most of the abortion clinics in Texas. The clinics would have to undergo extremely costly renovations in order to essentially become mini-hospitals. Some clinics have already shut down or are preparing to do so. A spokesperson for the Center for Reproductive Rights said the plaintiffs are not yet challenging that part of the law because it does not go into effect until September 2014. Any one of these restrictions would have a devastating impact blog url across the state of Texas, said Nancy Northup, president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights.

S. Texas provides gauge on health care law impact

But we've also noticed an increasingly disturbing trend - the militarization of police departments all around the country. The so-called "war on terror" is largely responsible for this alarming development, funneling tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to communities of all sizes to purchase military-style gear so that they can, someday, at some point, maybe respond to a terrorist incident. Well, with all of this gear just sitting around, some departments, unfortunately, have begun to incorporate it into police functions, such as serving routing warrants, which, once upon a time, did not call for such heavy-handed tactics. Worse, the "gear up first, ask questions later" mentality has led to some poor decisions. From police work to video series From Courthouse News Service: Texas lawmen broke into a woman's house without a warrant to arrest her on bogus marijuana charges, and filmed it for a constable's YouTube reality show, the 61-year-old woman claims in court. Perla Carr sued Montgomery County, Texas, its District Attorney Brett Ligon, its Precinct 4 Constable Kenneth "Rowdy" Hayden, Precinct 4 Chief Barry Welch and three other deputy constables, in Federal Court. The woman says that "loud noises of someone breaking into her home" awoke her at about 10:15 p.m.

Frackers Guzzle Water as Texas Goes Thirsty

"I wasn't going there, but my girlfriend kept hitting me in the leg and said, 'Don't stop now, we have to win this thing.'" Known as the "world's largest motorcycle jumper," Beckley's big bid earned him a two-year lease on the state land near Twin Falls, Idaho. "It takes a year to do one of these things," he said. "We still have lots of hoops to jump through and a lot of government entities that have their hand out." In addition to paying out the winning bid, Beckley must also pay $25,000 a year to the Idaho Department of Lands for the duration of his lease, have $10 million in commercial liability insurance and fork over a share of the event's revenue to the state, The Associated Press reported. The daredevil said he and a team of engineers have already started working on the rocket-powered motorcycle stunt and even have a date in mind for the launch. Beckley said he hopes to ride on Sept. 7, 2014 -- just one day before the 40th anniversary of Knievel's unsuccessful attempt. In order to prepare, Beckley and his team are planning simulations and gravity tests to ensure his super-charged bike is up for the task.

Kim, you've been replaced! Kris Jenner adopts her daughter's style... and even borrows her best friend Jonathan Cheban

Despite being caught up in a lot of marriage drama , the reality TV star is looking gorgeously glowing - especially in the bum department (see pictures for evidence). As for eldest sister Kourtney, despite giving birth twice and revealing that she felt the pressure to lose the 45lbs she gained after giving birth to second child Penelope, she still has one of the most enviable bodies - and bottoms - in celeb land. "I try to do squats and stuff that will keep the booty up there," the 34-year-old mum has revealed. Squats, eh?

The tabloid adds, Kim is always looking for the quick fix, including with her body. The way she looks is the most important thing to her. And while Kim never seems to have a problem with self-esteem, the tab claims that gaining baby weight caused her self-esteem to plummet, alleging, Kim is still feeling very insecure about how her body has changed since giving birth. It is stretched and saggy in places and nowhere near as toned as she was in the past. Kims solution? Lipo, a boob lift and Botox are among the procedures on her hot-mama checklist. Wow, sounds like a messy job.

I do not love beauty pageants. They make girls feel bad about themselves rather than loving who they are and their own beauty, she replied via e-mail. Being an entrepreneur, its more of who I am. You work, and it grows. You can see your goal and develop it into something much more. It doesnt end. With a beauty pageant, once you achieve your goal of winning, thats the end, its over and done.

Dance New Amsterdam to Vacate Studio Next Month

The new AMS-IX platform "has the potential to deliver a better Internet experience for all users in the regions serviced by SEACOM including Southern Africa, East Africa, Asia and Europe at lower costs while boosting the country's Internet economy," said SEACOM CEO Mark Simpson in a press release. Edith Mwale, telecom analyst at Africa Center for ICT Development, said, "This initiative between AMS-IX and KIXP will have a lot of benefits even for the Southern African region in terms of Internet exchange because of the involvement of SEACOM that is providing capacity in the region. The initiative is a new revolution in the provision of Internet services in the region." The African Union Commission has been pushing for such initiatives in Africa with the aim of improving interconnectivity between countries and reducing connectivity costs. The initiative is also aimed at making it easier for network operators and Internet service providers (ISPs) to do business across borders. The AU, for example, financed a project to set up Internet exchange points (IXPs) in 60 African countries.

The landlord also agreed to consider any proposals from DNA to stay in the studio, court papers show. Just a few weeks ago, DNA announced it had raised the $50,000 it needed to avoid an immediate shutdown. But it still hasnt been able to secure the long-term partnerships or substantial donations that are essential to its long-term viability. Thats why even as DNA continues to search for ways to continue supporting and educating dancers and other artists, it may need to close permanently once it vacates its studio. We continue to work devotedly to find a way to support our constituents regardless of where we work, dance, teach, create and perform, DNA executive director Catherine Peila said Monday in a statement.
