Davis - who recently gained notoriety in the press as she filibustered an abortion-legislation for some-13 hours as the Texas state senator from the 10th District in Fort Worth - sent an email asking her supporters to cough up some cash via a donation and to spread the word regarding a “what’s next” announcement which she will be delivering on Oct. 3, 2013.
With such a flamboyant introductory email, it is well-assumed that she will be going for something much bigger than her current job – leading pundits to harmoniously assume that she is seeking Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s job as Perry has decided to not run for another term. The composition of an email list in politics is often created for the purpose of gaining a huge amount of needed-donations and having access to supporters who might fill the volunteer rosters – which is customarily done when politicians are running for higher office, such as governor.
When Davis goes full force into election mode, she will face Republican candidates – currently led by Attorney General Greg Abbott who has generated at least $20 million for his campaign. Reportedly, Davis – whose Democratic Party has not occupied the state’s governor’s mansion for 20 years – will have to raise $40 million to have a chance at winning the governor’s race in Texas.
Davis became a national celebrity, of sorts, when she spoke for women and women’s rights regarding abortion last June. The liberals’ fascination with her should help her earn much of the needed money she will need for a respectable campaign.
