The president of NARAL Pro-Choice America is contemplating throwing her name into the mix for DNC chair.

Ilyse Hogue on Tuesday said through a spokeswoman that she was considering all of her options after many people within the Democratic Party asked her to run, according to Politico.

"In the last week many people within the Democratic Party at both the national and state level have approached Ilyse about running for chair of the party," NARAL spokeswoman Kaylie Hanson Long said in a statement. "She is listening and considering all her options."

Hogue, if she does run, will be the only woman attempting to do so. Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, South Carolina Democratic Party chairman Jaime Harrison and former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean have announced they will challenge for the position. Other contenders are former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and Labor Secretary Tom Perez according to Politico.

If she wins, Hogue would be replacing interim DNC chair Donna Brazile, under fire recently for sending Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton questions ahead of one of the presidential debates.

Hogue is a liberal activist and head of the nation's largest abortion rights advocacy group.
