The Wendy Davis Campaign’s Luxurious Accommodations

The gubernatorial campaign of Democrat Wendy Davis filed its January semi-annual finance report with the Texas Ethics Commission, detailing how much donors have given the campaign and how it’s being spent.

She may have once been “living in a tiny trailer” — at least for four months — but Wendy Davis’s campaign ensures she sleeps in better places these days.

When in New York, she stayed at the Sofitel, running up $1,545.55 in charges from October 22 to 24.

When in San Francisco from August 17 to 19, she stayed at the Fairmont Hotel, running up $1,015.27 in charges.

Sometimes when she’s in Washington D.C., she stays in Donovan House, spending $248.62 on August 8, perhaps enjoying the space-age chairs in the lobby.

Davis stayed at the Dupont Circle Hotel, accumulating $1,269.60 in charges, July 26 to 30.

Then on July 31 there was a charge for $229.23 at the Westin Georgetown.

Getting around D.C. can cost a pretty penny too; her campaign spent $412 on E Street Limousine on August 7 and $102 on ExecuCar on October 10.
