TX Dem. State Senator Wendy Davis “very, very seriously considering” launching gubernatorial bid


Wendy Davis Texas filibuster abortion

The wonderful State Senator Wendy Davis' filibuster of the GOP’s egregious proposals intruding upon women’s privacy, bodies, and reproductive rights was, in a word, awesome.

Now awesome Wendy Davis is seriously considering a bid for the Texas governorship. Which makes her even more awesome.

Via The Hill:

Wendy Davis told a crowd of several hundred women in San Francisco on Friday that she was “very, very seriously considering” launching a campaign to replace Republican Gov. Rick Perry next year. [...]

This week, Davis argued that Republicans had stifled the role of women in the political debate at large by controlling the redistricting and the drawing of political boundaries.

She said she was seriously exploring whether she could stand a winning chance at taking on the Republican establishment in waging a fight for the Texas governor’s mansion. No Democrat has been governor of Texas since 1990.

Well, if that's the case, they're long overdue. Go get 'em, Wendy!
