TX Democratic Senator Wendy Davis considering running for governor

Tuesday, August 6, 2013 - 9:55am

State Senator Wendy Davis, who reached national fame after her 13 hour filibuster last month, says she's considering a run for governor.

Davis spoke at a luncheon on Monday at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., as you may recall, her lengthy filibuster temporarily delayed the state's new restrictive abortion bill.

She told the audience that her filibuster was filled with personal letters and stories from thousands of women.

When asked about her political future, Davis mentioned a possible run for the Texas Governor's Office and she didn't side step a question about being a vice presidential candidate stating, "An answer to that I would say, we will have to find out whether Hillary's planning to run for president first."
