Wendy Davis officially running for Governor of Texas

Released by the office of Wendy Davis:

Austin, TX: State Senator Wendy Davis today officially filed her paperwork for her candidacy to be the 48th Governor of Texas. Focusing on job creation and preserving the Texas promise for future generations, Senator Davis filed at uShip's flagship office in Austin where she was joined by supporters and volunteers.

"As Texans, we have so much to be proud of – where we've come from, and what we are today," said Sen. Wendy Davis. "I'm running for Governor because I believe all Texans should have a voice in their future and a place in Texas' future. Today is the official start of that journey – a journey that mean so much more than filing paperwork."

"Texas is the greatest state in this country, capable of leading the nation in medical and research science, in technology, in oil and gas production, in education -- every arena.  Politicians in Austin didn't build our state up to what it is today, that role falls to the hardworking Texans I meet every day on the campaign trail."
