AUSTIN -- A member of Attorney General Greg Abbott's gubernatorial campaign staff is raising eyebrows on Twitter.

Abbott adviser Dave Carney tweeted a link to an article titled "Total recall in Colorado ... And why Wendy Davis is too stupid to be governor." This refers to the democratic state senator who's considering a run for governor.

A response from the state's Democratic party reads in part, "Come November 2014, the women of Texas will make clear that the joke's actually on Republicans who find it okay" to make such a reference.

Abbott's campaign hasn't returned calls for comment. Last month the attorney general took heat for tweeting his thanks to a supporter who called Senator Davis an idiot.

Abbott later said he didn't condone that comment.
