Texas Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, laughs as she visits with supporters at her campaign headquarters March 4. / LM Otero, AP

Here's one Democratic office seeker who won't mind being seen in public with President Obama.

Texas governor candidate Wendy Davis, facing an uphill battle in November, said Thursday she plans to welcome Obama when he visits the Lone Star State in early April.

Davis told the Texas Tribune that she and Obama will be at the same event, a conference at the Lyndon Johnson library honoring the 1964 Civil Rights Act and including the current and former presidents.

"I'm definitely planning on being at the celebration," Davis said. "I'm excited about greeting our president there, and our former presidents."

Asked if she would shy away from a photo with Obama - who is unpopular in Texas - Davis said: "No, I'm definitely not going to do that."

Davis is considered an underdog in her race against Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott. The winner replaces retiring Republican Gov. Rick Perry.

It's not known whether Obama will appear at a campaign fundraiser while he is in Texas, and whether Davis will appear with him on the campaign trail.
