Months of speculation over Sen. Wendy Davis’ political future will be put to rest on October 3. Davis announced today via email that she will make her future plans known at a grassroots event that day. She had originally planned to make this announcement around Labor Day, but postponed it due to the sudden illness and death of her father. The email doesn’t give a location, but all signs point to Davis’ home district of Fort Worth.

Davis political star rose among Democrats, following her 13 hour abortion bill filibuster during the first special legislative session. In a rare move, the Texas Democratic Party and other progressive groups have been campaigning to garner pre-primary support and raise money for a gubernatorial run.

Davis has thus far only confirmed that she will either run for governor, or seek another term as Texas Senator. If she does decide to run for governor, Davis’ senate seat will be up for grabs. Fellow Democrats have also put their own political plans on hold until Davis makes her announcement.

Despite ramped up fundraising events, including several in Washington, D.C., Davis will face an uphill financial battle. Her potential Republican opponent Attorney General Greg Abbott already has more than $20 million in his campaign war chest.
