State political leaders descended on Austin this weekend for the annual Texas Tribune Festival.
State Senator Wendy Davis got an enthusiastic reception before a one-on-one sit down interview Sunday morning. Davis was the closing speaker for the three-day event.
While pressed on whether or not she'll make a run for governor, Davis managed to keep from giving any definite answer. She spent some time addressing the filibuster of abortion legislation that thrust her into the national spotlight this summer.
"What I'm struck by is that somehow that day tapped into what was a feeling for many young women that they weren't being heard and it's been remarkable to see their reaction to that,” Davis said. “It's been humbling to have been privileged to play a role in making that happen."
The UT band also made an appearance at the festival. Davis will be announcing her future political plans this Thursday in Fort Worth.
Sources close to the senator told the Associated Press last week that a run for governor is likely.
