Filibustering Texas Star to Run for Governor

Wendy Davis, the Texas state senator who became famous in June after filibustering an ultra-restrictive abortion bill (which later passed), just announced that she intends to run for governor of the state on the Democratic ticket. Early polls have her trailing the main Republican opponent, Attorney General Greg Abbott, by eight points, but half of those surveyed said they were undecided.
