Artur Davis is a former Democratic Congressman who aspired to be the first African-American Governor of Alabama.  Alas, he lost.  (It is believed that Alabama, by the way, DID elect the first statewide African-American candidate in the USA if you do not count the rigged Reconstruction elections – this justice of the state supreme court.  Justice Adams ran the only campaign I know of where his face was not on the literature.  He used a chair as the pictorial center of the two sided brochure.)

There are two reports that Davis is considering a run for Congress from Northern Virginia.  He is a moderate Democrat while in Congress who voted against Obamacare but also supported President Obama.

I think it is too early to tell if Davis would be a great GOP candidate either here or in Alabama but it is intriguing.  We’ll see if he starts to get involved in local political races or attends local events.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
