BREAKING NEWS – Dallas, Texas – The latest controversy to bubble up in the Texas gubernatorial race involves none of these. Instead, Democrat Wendy Davis is trying to make an issue out of whether her Republican rival would support a ban on interracial marriage. Two points of clarification here: There is no such ban on interracial marriage, or any such proposal. Her opponent, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, also happens to be married to a Latina. Davis’s critics accused her of trying to make an issue out of something that is a non-issue, with the hopes of twisting any words he used. When she didn’t get a response to her question, the moderator of the debate accused her of attempting to turn realtors against Abbott, by asking him if he thought the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 was a “shady land deal”.
