September Issue

Wendy Davis Poses in Vogue

Texas senator Wendy Davis, of abortion filibuster fame, will appear in Vogue’s famous September issue, posing in the rotunda of her state’s Capitol building. The spread accompanies an in-depth profile of Davis that covers her trajectory from single motherhood to Harvard Law school to becoming a leader in Texas Democratic politics. Meanwhile, Davis is said to be testing the waters for a gubernatorial run in Texas, where she is working to calibrate an appropriate message. Davis shot to liberal stardom after her 13-hour filibuster of a controversial abortion bill, but advisers fear too much outside attention might be counterproductive in a race for governor in one of the country’s most conservative states.
