Originally posted at Bloomberg.

It was one of the most schadenfreude-rich sidebars of the 2014 elections. Texas state Senator Wendy Davis, who by general agreement ran a horrid campaign for governor, vacated her Fort Worth-area seat. Tea Party activist Konni Burton, a veteran of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz’s campaign, ran to replace her. Burton won, fairly easily, after promising to replace a pro-choice vote with a pro-life one.
