They Said It! Former Democrat Rep. Artur Davis Joins GOP, Cites Democrats’ Anti-Business

- May 30, 2012

Former Democrat Congressman Joins GOP, Criticizes Democrats’ “Agenda That Would Punish Businesses And Job Creators With More Taxes”

“Obama Ally Artur Davis Leaves Democratic Party.” (Catalina Camia, “Obama Ally Artur Davis Leaves Democratic Party,” USA Today, 5/30/12)

Former Alabama Democrat Congressman Artur Davis: “If I were to run, it would be as a Republican.” (Artur Davis, “A Response To Political Rumors,” Artur Davis Website, 5/29/12)

  • Davis: “On the specifics, I have regularly criticized an agenda that would punish businesses and job creators with more taxes just as they are trying to thrive again. I have taken issue with an administration that has lapsed into a bloc by bloc appeal to group grievances when the country is already too fractured: frankly, the symbolism of Barack Obama winning has not given us the substance of a united country.” (Artur Davis, “A Response To Political Rumors,” Artur Davis Website, 5/29/12)

NOTE: Davis Was The First Congressman Outside Of Illinois To Endorse Obama For President. “Seventeen years passed until, a year ago, Rep. Artur Davis of Alabama became the first congressman outside Illinois to endorse the presidential candidacy of Sen. Barack Obama.” (Howard Fineman, “Part Of Something Larger,” Newsweek, 2/16/08)
