Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis Would Like To Run For Statewide Office


Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), who generated buzz this week when she led an epic, nearly 13-hour filibuster of a restrictive proposed abortion bill, said Wednesday that she would consider running for higher office.

“I would be lying if I told you that I hadn’t had aspirations to run for a statewide office,” Davis told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes when asked if she would run for governor.

She added that chances are “pretty good” that the sentiment of Texans towards the abortion bill foreshadows a desire for new leadership.
