As if there was ever any question, Democratic groups from across the state are making it clear. They want Wendy Davis to run for governor. Annie’s List, a group dedicated to getting Democratic women elected in Texas, launched a campaign today to encourage Davis to join the race. The campaign is accompanied by a new website to garner support and raise money.

Annie’s List’s announcement was quickly followed by letters of support by other major Democratic groups including the Texas Democratic PartyBattleground Texas and the Lone Star Project.  All four groups are calling on people to sign an online petition, asking for volunteers and encouraging campaign contributions.

Senator Wendy Davis is one of the bright stars of the Texas Democratic Party, and I hope you’ll join me and urge Senator Davis to run for Governor of Texas,” TDP Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa said.

Davis was thrust into the national spotlight following a 13-hour filibuster on the Senate floor that ultimately delayed a controversial abortion vote. She has said she would either run for governor or for reelection to the Texas Senate. That decision is expected to come sometime around Labor Day. If Davis does decide to run, she would likely face a very well-funded Attorney General Greg Abbott in the general election.
