Wendy Davis' tone defiant again as Democrats meet

Posted: Updated:
Democrat Wendy Davis is out to rejuvenate her run for Texas governor by reviving the message that followed her nearly 13-hour filibuster a year ago: Despite what it looks like, the fight isn't over.

The Fort Worth state senator is predicting victory this November heading into the Texas Democratic Convention that begins Thursday in Dallas. Party delegates and frustrated supporters are eager to find momentum that's been elusive against heavily favored Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott.

As doubt grows about Davis' chances, the Fort Worth state senator delivered an impassioned speech Wednesday night in Austin on the anniversary of her star-making filibuster. She harnessed the defiant tone she commanded in a rowdy Senate chamber last summer as she blasted Republicans on abortion Wednesday.

Davis will address delegates Friday night.
