The new information comes as equal pay for women sits in the spotlight of the Texas gubernatorial race between Davis and Attorney General Greg Abbott (R). A spokesman for Abbott's campaign said if he were governor he wouldn't sign legislation that would help women who bring forward pay discrimination lawsuits.

The San Antonio Express-News also reported that female assistant attorneys general under Abbott, on average, make less than their male counterparts. The Express-News found that the 343 male assistant attorneys general made on average $79,464 while the 379 women make on average $73,649.
