Sen. Wendy Davis is hot on the campaign trail after announcing her run for Texas governor last week.
She made a couple of stops in San Antonio Monday to talk about why she wants to be the next governor.
Davis received a tour of San Antonio based Rackspace, a growing high tech company with more than 4,800 employees.
The company has received grant money from the Texas Enterprise Fund--a pet project of Gov. Rick Perry. The effort, which funds businesses in Texas, has caught heat for putting money in the pockets of Perry stakeholders. Sen. Davis asked if she would continue the TEF as governor.
"Obviously this is an incredible success story where the private partner held up their end of the bargain in terms of the number of jobs that were created, but it's important they be monitored and I was proud to pass a piece of legislation this session to audit the enterprise fund," she said.
Davis also said she hopes an anti-discrimination ordinance, like the one that just passed in San Antonio, becomes commonplace in Texas.
"It's important people be treated equally in the workplace, plain and simple," Davis said.
When asked by reporters, the senator also spoke about her support for a pathway to citizenship and legislation that would let undocumented immigrants get a driver’s license.
"It's an issue of safety, of public safety,” she said. “I think anyone who's on the road driving an automobile should have a license and should be insured."
Sen. Davis also spoke to campaign volunteers while in San Antonio. She has an uphill battle against the likely Republican nominee Attorney General Greg Abbott, who has already raised more than $20 million.
