Sandra Fluke to pass on Congress but run for state Senate seat

Washington (CNN) - After considering a run for a Congressional seat in California, women's rights activist Sandra Fluke announced Wednesday she'll run for a state Senate seat instead.

"I feel there is better way for me to advance the causes that are important to our community," Fluke said in a statement. "After careful consideration, I am proud to announce my candidacy for the 26th District of the California State Senate."

Sandra Fluke asks for California Democratic Party endorsement

Washington (CNN) - Sandra Fluke has asked the California Democratic Party for their endorsement in the race for an open 2014 congressional seat, but a spokeswoman for the women's rights activist says Fluke is still on the fence about a bid.

"It is not the same as filing to run or declaring that she is running," said Abigail Gardner, Fluke's spokeswoman, in an email. "It was something she felt she had to do on Friday to keep her options open due to CA Dem Party deadlines."
