Wendy Davis Considering Texas Governors Race

By    |   Monday, 05 August 2013 08:03 PM

Wendy Davis says she's running for political office, she's just not sure which one.

The Democratic state senator from Texas, who captured national attention earlier this summer for filibustering a law restricting abortion after 20 weeks, said she might seek re-election or run for governor.

If asked to serve as Hillary Clinton's running mate in the next race for president, Davis signaled that being vice president might also be a consideration if the former first lady and secretary of state decides to run.

But until then, "I can say with absolute certainty that I will run for one of two offices: my state Senate seat or for the governor," Davis said a National Press Club luncheon.

The Washington Times reported Davis' speech and said the Texan faces an uphill battle against Republican state Attorney General Greg Abbott.

"I’m still trying to decide, but I do think people are ready for a change from the partisan, very fractured leadership we have in Texas," Davis told Politico in an interview prior to her speech.

"I gotta get my final decision made soon," Davis said.

Speculation that Davis would seek higher office began just days after her 13-hour filibuster, which blocked the abortion bill from passing in the waning hours of the legislative session.
