    Texas state Senator and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis announced she will have "routine" surgery to correct an issue with her neck.

    Communications Director Zac Petkanas released the following statement:

    "After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Senator Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck."

    Petkanas said the condition is commonly experienced by runners and endurance athletes.

    The campaign announced Davis plans to have the surgery in Fort Worth on Wednesday morning and has planned to resume campaigning following the Easter holidays.
