The latest big winner of the abortion lobby lottery is Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, who, according to the Washington Examiner’s Tim Carney, is expected to announce a haul of $10 million for the second quarter of 2013 this week:
The abortion lobby lies at the heart of the Democratic fundraising machine. President Obama’s biggest fundraisers in Texas include Cecile Richards and Naomi Aberly, both of whom are at the upper echelons of Planned Parenthood, which leads the nation in abortions.
When we get Davis’s numbers this week, expect to see some journalists surprised at Davis’s haul. They shouldn’t be. Championing legal abortion is generally profitable for candidates.
