Texas Democratic Gubernatorial nominee Wendy Davis was on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart Monday in a bid to stir interest in her flailing campaign.

Davis championed abortion and claimed the Texas voter ID law would disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters.

When Stewart asked why Democrats can’t turn Texas blue, Davis blamed congressional redistricting. (RELATED: Wendy Davis Uses Greg Abbott’s Wheelchair Against Him In New Ad)

Saying, “It’s on its way, it really is on its way. And what we’ve suffered from here for quite a while is two decades of Republican led redistricting that have created very purely drawn Republican districts and a few very purely drawn Democratic ones. And so all of the conversations in elections take place during primaries.”

The governor’s race, where Davis is trailing by double-digits, will be decided Nov. 4 in a statewide election. (RELATED: Master Debater: Wendy Davis Attacks Abbott With Dildos)
