AUSTIN (KXAN) - For much of the summer, state Sen. Wendy Davis' political brain trust has kept the Democrat's plans for 2014 close to the vest -- even when all indications pointed to a run for governor.
But just a couple of hours before Davis was to formally announce her plans for the upcoming campaign on Thursday, a photos of the lawmaker alongside a display for "Wendy Davis for Texas for Governor" t-shirts and bumper stickers cropped up. The photo carries the Davis campaign logo and carries the message "Wendy Davis Store."
The photo was captured in a screen-grab by Republican activist Eliza Vielma, who posted it on her Twitter page.
"Someone's digital team accidentally launched & retracted quickly. I guess it's no secret now," Vielma tweeted.
Davis is expected to formally announce around 5 p.m. in North Texas. KXAN.com will carry the announcement live.
