The Associated Press is reporting that two Democrats with knowledge of the decision say Texas State Senator Wendy Davis is running for governor.

Davis gained national attention for her filibuster of a controversial abortion bill in the Texas Legislature this past Spring.

Current Texas Gov. Rick Perry is not seeking office again.

If Davis wins the Democratic Party primary, she will most likely face lead Republican Party nomination contender Greg Abbott in the race for governor.
