A photo tweeted by Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate, State Senator Wendy Davis, marking her appearance on The Daily Show Monday, shows host Jon Stewart being less than enthusiastic. Davis’s daughters, Amber and Dru, are also in the photo.

Davis appeared on the program Monday to promote not only her campaign, but also her memoir, Forgetting To Be Afraid. The show was filmed on location in Austin rather than the usual New York studio.
Topics discussed during her appearance, which lasted just under five minutes, included her 13 hour filibuster to block an abortion bill and the recent overturning of a voter ID law in the Lone Star State. The audience booed Republican candidate Attorney General Greg Abbott when his name was mentioned.
The latest poll conducted by CBS News/The New York Times/YouGov has Davis behind Abbott by 20 points, 57-37 percent.
