At 11:18 this morning, State Senator Wendy Davis took to the floor of the Texas State Senate, beginning a filibuster that Democrats hope will stop the passage of a bill that Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst gleefully tweeted, would shut down most of the women’s clinics in the state. The Senator must continue speaking until midnight tonight to keep Republicans from bringing their Draconian bill to the floor. Watch live as Senator Davis stands alone, a warrior in the (imaginary) War on Women.
