Looking more and more like a general election that's in full swing, gubernatorial opponents Wendy Davis and Greg Abbott took shots at each other this week over Abbott’s response to a question about an equal-pay for women bill that was vetoed by Governor Rick Perry following this past session.   

Wendy Davis says her education policy will contain a greater use of technology even amongst poorer school districts -- the Democratic nominee for governor was one of the keynote speakers at this week’s South by Southwest Education conference.

In a packed room at SXSWedu in Austin, Davis provided a sneak peak at another component to her education platform: Innovation and technology.

State Senator Wendy Davis is the Democratic hopeful. She's challenging Republican Greg Abbott, the state's attorney general. Both are expected to easily win their primaries.

The University of Texas at Austin/Texas Tribune poll showed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis was down by 5 points in October, but this month’s poll shows a wider 11-point margin between her and Republican frontrunner Greg Abbott.

Professor Jim Henson with the University of Texas at Austin’s Texas Politics Project said there is something else to note.

"We’re seeing a bit of shrinkage in the undecided numbers in the state level general election numbers," Henson said.
