Ex-Madam Kristin Davis Plans to 'Bring It On' in New York's Gubernatorial Debate

In an interview with ABC News, Davis was able to argue her positions clearly and forcefully.

"In all honesty, I haven't done a lot of preparation (for the debate). I don't want to sound particularly cocky, but these are issues I have been talking about for 16 months," she said.

"My background is finance. I got into the escort industry because it was the economically viable thing to do … I didn't come from a 'working girl' background."

Before entering the sex business Davis spent 10 years in the securities industry. She began as a trading assistant and eventually oversaw the back-office and government-compliance operations of a hedge fund, according to her website.

In a year in which people are angry and disenchanted with politics, Davis is hoping to receive a sizable protest vote.

If she receives 50,000 votes, her Anti-Prohibition Party will be guaranteed a spot on New York's ballot in the next gubernatorial election, extending her 15 minutes of fame for at least four more years.

"I'm pretty confident we'll get it," she said.
