AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis is scheduled to undergo neck surgery to relieve pain in her shoulder and right arm.

Spokesman Zac Petkanas said Tuesday that doctors will remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck. The procedure is scheduled for Wednesday in Fort Worth.

Petkanas described the procedure as routine. He said Davis will return to a normal campaign schedule following the Easter holiday.

Davis campaigned Tuesday in Dallas, where she criticized Republican opponent Greg Abbott and his prekindergarten plan at a meeting of retired Texas teachers.
