Since Gov. Rick Perry announced earlier this week that he wouldn't seek a record fourth-term in office, speculation continues to run rampant about the political future of state Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth.
Davis is still drawing national media attention for the more than 11-hour filibuster she led to end the first special session -- after observers in the gallery made so much noise that senators didn't know whether the bill they were voting on passed -- with the hope of derailing the comprehensive abortion bill the House gave formal approval to on Wednesday.
"I'm looking down the road at whether that's the right thing for me to do," she reportedly told MSNBC news anchor Andrea Mitchell on Wednesday, according to a Mitchell tweet.
Two Republicans have already said they'll run against Davis next year for the Texas Senate District 10 seat -- former state Rep. Mark Shelton, R-Fort Worth, who unsuccessfully challenged Davis for the job last year, and Konni Burton, a longtime leader within the Northeast Tarrant Tea Party and her community.
