Tune in to a must-see Hannity tonight at 10p ET to see Sean's exclusive interview with Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott.


The gubernatorial race in Texas is growing increasingly ugly.

In a controversial ad, Democratic candidate Wendy Davis used an image of a wheelchair to attack her opponent, Republican Greg Abbott, a paraplegic.

The ad asserts that Abbott - who according to the most recent Real Clear Politics average leads Davis comfortably in the race 51.3% to 40.0% - has been hypocritical by making millions in a lawsuit following a 1984 accident that left him wheelchair-bound only to go on to spend his career fighting against patients’ rights.

On America’s Newsroom this morning, Joe Trippi said it should have been obvious to Davis and her team that the ad would come off as a desperate low blow.

He suggested her campaign created the ad as a Hail Mary pass, seeing the poll numbers as basically insurmountable.

“She’s going to get trounced. This is campaign malfeasance,” Ed Rollins said, adding that Abbott’s duties performed as the Texas Attorney General and a prosecutor were on behalf of the state and counties he represented, not his personal wishes.

“To argue that he basically has spent his life fighting against disabled people is just so outrageous,” Rollins said.

"This is a man who is disabled, who has been in a wheelchair for a long period of time, totally crippled, and has had an extraordinary life."
