Texas senator Wendy Davis
Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis
Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis got quite the welcome from Democrats in Washington, D.C., as she visited for a fundraiser. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was one of several members of Congress who came out in support of Davis:
So great to meet @WendyDavisTexas! As Democrats, we're ready to fight back and #StandWithWomen. http://t.co/...
The fundraiser was for Davis's state Senate reelection campaign and Davis isn't saying whether she has other plans for 2014, but Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand put herself firmly in the draft camp:
“She didn’t [say her plans], but I did: I told her she should run for governor,” said Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) outside Davis’s breakfast fundraiser, blocks from the U.S. Capitol.
Gillibrand is right. Let's draft Wendy Davis for Texas governor in 2014.
