Wendy Davis Says she’ll Seek Re-Election Or Run For Governor

WASHINGTON — State Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, said Monday she’ll either run for re-election or for Texas governor, and that she’s working hard to make her decision.

Speaking at a National Press Club luncheon, Davis said those were the only two options, and that she’s not considering joining the lieutenant governor’s race.

Davis shot to national prominence in June after staging an hours-long filibuster in the state Senate in an attempt to kill some of the most restrictive abortion regulations in the country. That filibuster succeeded, but the legislation later passed in a special legislative session.

Since the filibuster, Davis has appeared at fundraisers in Washington and spoken on national television. She has been the subject of speculation over a potential statewide run in 2014. In the final two weeks of June, Davis’ campaign raised almost $1 million in donations.
