The national spotlight will shine on Texas State Senator Wendy Davis of Fort Worth once again on Sunday morning. The Democrat will appear on "Meet The Press with David Gregory." It airs Sunday at 9:00 a.m. on NBC 5.
State Sen. Davis' appearance comes nearly a week after her 12-hour filibuster and the subsequent protest that killed an effort to restrict abortions. The victory was short-lived. On Wednesday, Gov. Rick Perry called a second special session beginning July 1 to pass the restrictions and other measures.
Since the filibuster, State Sen. Davis has appeared on msnbc's "Morning Joe" program, "CBS This Morning" and other national news programs.
As of Saturday night, she has more than 118,000 followers on Twitter. She had only 1,200 before the filibuster began.
The Austin band The Bright Light Social Hour recorded a song named "Wendy Davis."
Not all of the attention has been positive. During his address to the National Right To Life convention, Gov. Perry criticized State Sen. Davis.
"It's just unfortunate that she hasn't learned from her own example that every life must be given the chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters," Gov. Perry said.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Davis told msnbc's "All In With Chris Hayes" last week she is considering a run for statewide office.
You can see what she has to say on NBC's "Meet The Press with David Gregory" Sunday at 9:00 a.m. only on NBC 5.
