Artur Davis Explains Why He Changed From A Democrat To A Republican

Artur Davis represented Alabama’s 7th congressional district, serving from 2003 to 2011, and was the first congressman outside Illinois to endorse the presidential candidacy of Senator Barack Obama. Now he has decided to switch parties from Democrat to Republican, and has moved to Virginia. Davis explained on his web page, “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.” Davis went on Fox News Tuesday to explain his switch.
