Wendy Davis to Join Texas Governor's Race, Sources Say
Several influential Democrats today tell the Star-Telegram that Davis and her team have told supporters that she’s in the race, but wanted to be the one to publicly announce the news to grassroots supporters during an afternoon event Oct. 3
The word is out that it’s about to become official: State Sen. Wendy Davis will run for governor next year.
Several influential Democrats today tell the Star-Telegram that Davis and her team have told supporters that she’s in the race, but wanted to be the one to publicly announce the news to grassroots supporters during an afternoon event Oct. 3 somewhere in the area of her home base in Fort Worth. They requested anonymity because they were not authorized by the campaign to speak.
Davis staffers said only that the senator has made up her mind about her political plans — and they would not confirm Politico reports that she’s begun to notify party leaders of her decision.
“Sen. Davis announced last week to her grassroots supporters that she has made a decision and she will announce that decision on Oct. 3,” said Hector Nieto, a spokesman with Davis’ campaign.
Davis last week generated headlines by announcing she’s going to make her announcement next week. Today, her campaign is making news again — especially in digital news circles — with more coverage of pre-announcement activities.
Republicans say Davis doesn’t have a chance of winning the gubernatorial race; Democrats admit it’s an unlikely uphill battle.
