What's next for Wendy Davis after she inevitably loses?

Liberal groups hope she would raise money, recruit candidates and become a much-needed new face for abortion rights. Several Democratic strategists say her growing national fame, fundraising prowess and extensive list of loyal followers could set her up for a long career in national Democratic politics. And political operatives in Texas hope Davis stays put in the Lone Star State as they try to turn it into a Democratic stronghold.

“She’ll have a life afterward,” said one veteran Democratic strategist. “She will have a formidable database on her hands. She really is attracting probably more individuals supportive of her campaign than any other Democratic candidate in recent times from Texas.”

That database means that Davis will continue to be a fundraising powerhouse and her endorsement of candidates will carry weight with activists across the country.
