Texas Senator Wendy Davis Channeled Wu-Tang On Election Day

Votes rule everything around me.

Texas Senator, Wendy Davis, definitely knows what's up. On Election Day, she hit the polls to greet voters sporting a Wu-Tang Clan inspired sweatshirt.

The Democratic candidate was running to become to Governor of Texas, and while she lost the election, Davis still made a pretty bold statement on Tuesday. Inside the yellow Wu-branded "W" on her sweatshirt, her name was spelled out, and you've gotta appreciate her sense of humor.

In 2013, Davis's popularity hit a particularly high note when she engaged in a 12-hour filibuster to combat Texas' SB 5 anti-abortion bill. During those hours, the hashtag #StandWithWendy trended on Twitter, thanks to help from supports like President Obama and Lena Dunham.

The pink Mizuno Women’s Wave Rider 16 sneakers she wore during the filibuster also became a symbol for the pro-choice movement, and saw a sales spike in the days that followed the filibuster.

Oh, and then there were the Wendy Davis memes...
