AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Democrat Wendy Davis says President Barack Obama should visit the Texas border to witness firsthand the crisis of tens of thousands of young migrants entering the U.S.

Her comments Thursday made Davis the most high-profile Texas Democrat yet to urge Obama to make the trip. She is the Democratic nominee for Texas governor and has garnered nationwide support.

The White House has insisted there was little the president could learn from a border visit that he didn't already know.

She addressed reporters in Austin just blocks from where Obama was to later speak about the economy. Davis says it's one thing to follow the crisis "in the abstract," but seeing it up close provides meaning.

U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Texas Democrat, has also criticized Obama for skipping the border.

It should be 100% yes votes. I am curious about the reasoning why almost 25% voted no
