In a coup of historic proportions, we at RedState have placed a mole in the Wendy Davis campaign for just this exact moment. Our mole has caught a recording of Wendy Davis practicing her expected concession speech tonight and we are excited to provide the text to you, a full nine hours before Wendy Davis is expected to concede. Without adieu, here it is!
Thank you, thank you to all of you for coming out here to show your support for our campaign. I know many of you have spent many long hours block walking, standing for hours in the rain at campaign events, running errands to make sure the campaign ran smoothly, standing up for Texas values and doing all the other things that (may I remind you) my opponent is physically unable to do.
