Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D) drew several big-name Democratic senators Thursday to a Capitol Hill fundraiser, the Houston Chronicle reported.

In attendance were Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Patty Murray (D-WA), and Mazie Hirono (D-HI), according to the Chronicle. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), who was also in attendance, told the newspaper that Davis “didn’t announce anything.”

Davis has not ruled out a run for the Texas governor’s office. Following her filibuster of a restrictive abortion bill that gained national attention, the state senator raised almost $1 million in the second half of June.
