Sen. Wendy Davis has sent out a strong statement pledging to fight on:

Statement by Sen. Wendy Davis on Announcement of Second Special Session

Misplaced priorities of legislative leaders squandered a tremendous opportunity to make much needed improvements in our transportation infrastructure and help create good jobs and bring businesses to Texas. Despite urging by responsible members of the Senate to bring up the matter of transportation, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst derailed as much as much as $1 billion per year in transportation funding by stubbornly pushing divisive, failed legislation attacking women's health care options.

If leaders are serious about using this second called special session to improve the lives of Texans by repairing and expanding our transportation networks, they will find no greater ally than me. If they intend to keep pushing their extreme personal political agenda ahead of the interests of Texas families, I will not back off of my duty to fight on their behalf.

3. More than likely Julian Castro (mayor of San Antonio) will be running for Texas governor


... in 2014 or 2018, but if not then Wendy Davis would be great

5. And text below from Senator Wendy Davis' facebook page


Senator Wendy R. Davis

I am humbled and honored by the thousands and thousands of messages of support I have received from Texans and our friends around the nation. What happened yesterday was a victory for the people of Texas but our fight isn't over yet. Less than 24 hours after our filibuster, Governor Perry has once again chosen the low road of partisanship over the common good by calling a second special session. I have no doubt that our state's failed leadership will do everything they can to thwart the will of the majority of Texans and pass this harmful bill that we have worked so hard to defeat. But the voices of Texas inspired me last night, and I stand ready for another fight. I hope you will continue to stand with me.

That woman is as eloquent as she is courageous. She's clear, to the point and convincing. What more could you want from a leader? Can you even imagine what Texas would be like with her as governor, instead of that stuffed-suit dim-wit, Perry? It boggles the mind!
