    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 11/30/15 | Alana Goodman
    Hillary Clinton has appointed to her leadership team a former congressman who blamed his defeat on “Jewish interests” and the “Jewish media,” her campaign announced earlier this month.The Clinton campaign named Earl Hilliard, Sr., who served in Congress from 1992 to 2002, as part of her 60-member Alabama leadership team on Nov. 20.Hilliard, who lost to then-Democrat Artur Davis in 2002, was considered one of Israel’s most vocal opponents in Congress. Davis, a staunch supporter of Israel who became a Republican in 2012, had the backing of groups such as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the Anti-Defamation League in...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Four years ago, Artur Davis was the first congressman outside Illinois to endorse Obama. He delivered a nominating speech at the Democrat convention in Denver that nominated Barack Obama. Now, four years ago later, Artur Davis shows up at the Republican convention. Mia Love was great and Ann Romney was great, don't misunderstand. But I think this speech that Artur Davis delivered last night was just a home run. I only have three excerpts, three sound bites of it, but they are enough to get the point across. Here's Artur Davis saying that Obama is a mistake...

    There seems to be a movement on the local and state level, Scott said, of black Democrats who want to align with their values rather than with their history as Democrats. Well continue to see that shift. Artur Davis, a former Democratic congressman from Alabama, has been a Republican for only a few months. But his speech tonight at the Republican convention is important because he reflects a major theme of Mitt Romneys campaign against President Obama and another theme promoted by the GOP. The Romney theme is that its okay to have changed your mind about Obama. Davis, an...

If I can be direct, Ive spoken to a few African-American audiences in my day. Every African-American in that audience knew who the yall was, and every African-American in that audience knew what buttons he was trying to push by talking about chains, Davis said, while campaigning for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Arlington, Va.

    Artur Davis, a Democrat-turned-Republican former congressman from Alabama, on Wednesday accused Vice President Joe Biden of using racially divisive rhetoric that is "insulting" to African-Americans. "I know what Joe Biden was doing yesterday," Davis said in an appearance on CNN. "Every black person in that room knew who the 'y'all' was. They knew what the chains were. They knew what the metaphor was about." In remarks at a campaign event in Virginia Tuesday with a number of African-American audience members, the vice president lambasted Romney for allegedly wanting to repeal financial regulations enacted after the Wall Street crash of 2008.

Today Davis is a Republican and in Virginia campaigning for Mitt Romney. Heserved in Congress from 2003 to 2011.

    former four-term Democratic congressman from Alabama and one time strong supporter of President Barack Obama will campaign for Mitt Romney Wednesday. A Romney campaign aide confirms to CNN that Artur Davis will stump for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee in the battleground state of Virginia. Davis, who is black, may be best known for seconding Obama's nomination at the Democratic National Convention in 2008, when he served as an Obama campaign co-chairman. Davis said he had hoped Obama's presidency would make a huge dent in race relations, as well as move the Democratic Party further to the center. In 2010,...

  • Four-term Former (Dem) Congressman & Obama 2008 Co-Chair Announces He's Now a Republican

    You might think that the news of an African-American former Congressman switching his publicly declared party loyalty from Democrat to Republican would a national story. Well, it isn't at the Associated Press, as a search returning no results at the wire service's national site on the full name of former Alabama Congressman Artur Davis (not in quotes) done at about 9 p.m. indicates. Additionally, the link to news about Davis's party switch is currently perched in the "Post Local" section at the Washington Post's web site. If this makes TV anywhere but Fox News, I'll be surprised, even though by...

    Commentary ^ | 05.30.2012 | Seth Mandel
    @SethAMandelYesterday, Alana noted the latest fallout from Cory Booker's critique of the Obama administration on "Meet the Press" and the subsequent, utterly ridiculous "hostage" video he recorded after the Obama campaign reminded him that independent thinking is strongly discouraged in the Democratic Party. Booker's communications director, Anne Torres, resigned, citing “different views on how communications should be run.”It wasn't clear whether Torres objected more to Booker's defense of capitalism or the cringeworthy apology video–which would have been embarrassing for any communications shop to have on its record–or whether this was merely the last straw in a simmering dispute (possibly about...

    He's not just any Democrat. This is a guy who gave a seconding speech for O's nomination four years ago at the convention and was the southern regional co-chair for the DCCC. With those credentials, the PR value to the GOP of having him dump his old party to become a Republican would be huge under any circumstances. Factor in the symbolism of a young black Harvard-trained pol abandoning the Dems in the middle of Obama's reelection campaign and you've got a GOP folk hero in the making. From his blog post announcing his party switch: But parties change. As...

    Former Democrat, Obama supporter and Congressman Artur Davis is making the switch to the Republican party. Davis is a former member of the Congressional Black Caucus and after watching for three years as the Democrats destroy this country and break promise after promise, he's had it. While I’ve gone to great lengths to keep this website a forum for ideas, and not a personal forum, I should say something about the various stories regarding my political future in Virginia, the state that has been my primary home since late December 2010. The short of it is this: I don’t know...
