Wendy Davis postpones announcement on future plans

Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D) said Wednesday that she is postponing an announcement on her future plans to focus on her family.

Earlier this month, Davis said that she would either seek reelection or run for governor, and that she would make the decision public soon. On Wednesday, the Texas Tribune reported that although Davis had planned to make an announcement by early September, she was putting the plan on hold.

"I had hoped to make public my decision about that next week, but with everything that's going on with my dad, I won't be doing that," she said to the Texas Tribune. "It's likely it will be late September before I do."
