Great Political Movies – Last Man Standing

This PBS documentary shows us the 2002 Texas State Representative race between Patrick Rose and Mark Green. In addition to capturing the drama of a down ballot race, the film also highlights the challenges Democrats have faced in Texas and other old Confederate states in the past decade.

If you want to know why Texas went from being the land of LBJ and Sam Rayburn to Ted Cruz and Louie Gohmert check this film out.  I would hope Wendy Davis has watched this film a few times.
