AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis insists “we’re going to win” despite her Republican opponent’s sizeable advantage in campaign cash and opinion polls.

The state senator from Fort Worth suggested Tuesday that long disillusioned voters will turn out to cast November ballots in stronger-than-expected numbers – enough to push her underdog bid over the top.

A Democrat hasn’t won statewide office in Texas in two decades.

Meanwhile, Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott’s gubernatorial campaign began last month with $36 million in cash on-hand. That’s about triple what Davis had.

And Davis has struggled to gain ground in the polls. But she said she’s not worried since they don’t reflect what she’s seeing on the ground: “I trust the people of Texas.”

An Abbott spokesman said the campaign had no immediate response.
