Texas Lawmaker Raised $1 Million After Filibuster

Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), who made national headliners by leading a filibuster against abortion legislation, raised almost $1 million in the final two weeks of June, the Texas Tribune reports.

"Davis, who is mulling a run for Texas governor in a state that hasn't elected a Democrat to statewide office since 1994, said in an interview ... that if she jumps into the governor's race, her ability to raise enough money to run a competitive statewide race will be 'a key question.'"
