Wendy Davis Is Running for Governor

Wendy Davis Is Running for Governor
Callie Richmond, Texas Tribune

It's official. Wendy Davis, the Fort Worth Democrat who rose to national prominence during her summer filibuster of abortion legislation, is running for governor. She made the announcement just now in the Haltom City auditorium where she graduated from high school.

Already, pro-life groups are readying ads that will portray her as a ruthless baby-killing machine. She will have to clear that hurdle if she hopes to reach the governor's mansion. She'll also have to haul in some major campaign donations and woo Latinos and suburban women. Most of all, she'll have to get more votes than Greg Abbott.
