Wendy Davis Wants Hillary Clinton For President In 2016

Wendy Davis is in the middle of her campaign to become the governor of Texas, and she's hoping she won't be the only woman assuming executive office in the near future.

"I am expecting a woman in the White House in 2016," Davis told HuffPost Live's Alyona Minkovski on Wednesday. "And I'm also expecting that Texas is going to play a role in electing that woman."

Specifically, she's hoping Hillary Clinton will be the one to do it.

"I certainly hope that our former secretary of state will consider moving forward in that direction," Davis said.

The current Texas state senator joined HuffPost Live to discuss her memoir Forgetting To Be Afraid and the Texas gubernatorial election, in which she faces Republican candidate Greg Abbott.
