AUSTIN, TEXAS (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Governor Rick Perry says Senator Wendy Davis should learn from her own experience.
Davis spent hours on the Senate floor in a filibuster to block a Republican led effort to place tighter regulations on abortion clinics and doctors.
Speaking on Thursday at the National Right to Life Conference near Dallas, the Governor talked about Davis' experiences.
After Perry's speech, Davis sent an email statement saying "Rick Perry's statement is without dignity and tarnishes the high office he holds."
