Women's rights activist Sandra Fluke said she would consider a run for office "if there's the right time, the right opportunity."

Fluke made the comment at a fundraiser for Emily's List, the political action committee aimed at electing pro-choice Democratic women to public office. Fluke was in San Francisco, California for the fundraiser with Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth).

San Francisco Chronicle reporter Carla Marinucci tweeted:

This isn't the first time Fluke has left the door open on a potential run for office. In March 2012, Fluke said "numerous American women" had written to her about a potential campaign.

Fluke became a women's rights activist after she was denied the right to speak at a controversial contraception hearing on Capitol Hill and then called a "slut" by conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.
