Wendy Davis told NBC News today that she’s considering a run for Texas Governor in 2014:
HUFFINGTON POST – Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) hinted Monday morning that she might be interested in running for governor.
After the senator’s 11-hour filibuster over abortion rights last week made her a national hero and an instant icon for women’s rights in Texas, speculation has been rampant over her next move. It could be a run for governor: Davis told NBC News Monday that she is taking a “second look” at the 2014 gubernatorial race.
Just yesterday Davis accused Perry of using the issue of abortion for political gain:
NY DAILY NEWS – Texas state senator and pro-abortion rights sensation Wendy Davis slammed her state’s leaders as opportunists eager to endanger women to further their own careers.
“Gov. (Rick) Perry and Lt. Gov. (David) Dewhurst are willing to … put women in harm’s way in order to step up on the political ladder,” she said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday morning.
