AUSTIN (AP) - State Sen. Wendy Davis is setting a date for when she will announce whether she will run for governor.

Her campaign said the Fort Worth Democrat will send out an e-mail Wednesday to supporters saying she will announce her plans Oct. 3. Davis asks supporters to join an e-mail list and says she is excited about the future. But she stops short of saying she will definitely run for governor.

Democrats across Texas and the country have been urging Davis to get into the race. No other significant candidate has filed for the Democratic nomination.

Davis won international attention when she staged a nearly 13-hour filibuster against new abortion restrictions in June. Gov. Rick Perry called the Republican-controlled Legislature back for a second special session to eventually pass the restrictions.
