Wendy Davis: Abortion is "Not the Only Issue I Care About"

Former Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis said she faced “backlash” from supporters when she attempted to expand her message beyond women’s reproductive rights, the issue that thrust her onto the national stage.

“It was a damned if you do, damned if you don’t sort of a situation,” the Democrat told NBC News’ Chuck Todd in an interview Tuesday at the SXSW conference for “1947: The Meet the Press Podcast” as part of the Meet the Press 70th Anniversary kickoff event.
