Wendy Davis, the Texas state senator who is poised to announce a Democratic bid for governor on Thursday, is an "abortion zealot" out of step with the rest of the state, according to a new ad going up in Texas this weekend.

"Wendy Davis puts late-term abortion ahead of our faith, our families and our Texas values," charges the 60-second radio ad from Texas Right to Life shared first with POLITICO.

Davis catapulted into the national limelight this summer for staging a lengthy filibuster that temporarily derailed a restrictive abortion bill, which ultimately passed.
