Democratic State Senator Wendy Davis' two daughters have written open letters to fight back after what they call a smear campaigns against their mother.
Following a recent newspaper article, critics questioned Davis' story of struggle as a single, teenage mom while pursuing an education.
Amber and Dru Davis wrote it's completely untrue their mother abandoned them for school.
They say no one ever lost or gave up custody, and they always felt supported by their parents.
Tuesday night, Davis was introduced by her daughter at an Austin event.
Greg Abbott's campaign has denied having anything to do with the newspaper article, but after it was published, his office issued a statement asking Texans what they could trust Davis on if she wasn't honest about her history.
