Texas Democrats will soon know if they can count on Wendy Davis to lead the party with a run for governor.
The Davis campaign confirmed Wednesday she'll be letting everyone know the answer on Oct. 3. That's the date sent out to close friends and supporters this week in an email.
As for where the announcement will take place, all signs point to Fort Worth. That's the area Davis has represented in the Texas Senate since 2008. Before that, she served nine years on the Fort Worth City Council.
Davis came into the national spotlight after she carried out a filibuster in the Texas Senate back in June over stricter abortion rules. The legislation died in that session thanks for the filibuster, but was passed in another special session called by Gov. Rick Perry.
Since then, Democrats across the state have been urging Davis to run for governor. A final decision was put on hold, in part because of the recent death of her father.
Davis has said she'll either run for governor, or run again for her Senate seat in 2014. She raised nearly a million dollars in the last two weeks of June alone for future political bids.
Since then she's made fundraising trips to Washington D.C. and around the state.
