AUSTIN (AP) – Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis is in Austin and plans a chat with reporters.

The state senator from Fort Worth is set to meet Tuesday with the news media at Democratic campaign headquarters in Travis County.

Davis has been a fundraising powerhouse, announcing she’d raked in $11.2 million from late February through June.

But her Republican opponent, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, reported raising nearly as much over the same period. And he began last month sporting $36 million in campaign cash.

That’s nearly triple what Davis reported having on hand.

Davis remains a heavy underdog in the race, but says she remains confident _ despite Abbott’s sizeable money advantage ahead of the November election.

A Democrat hasn’t won a statewide election in Texas in 20 years.
