Another Democrat Congressman denounces the Democrat Party and want to change his affiliation to the GOP. It doesn't matter that the Democrat Congressman was politically motivated, but the reason for leaving was extremely damning. It shows that being a modern day Democrat is wrong!
(LA TIMES) Artur Davis, one of President Obama’s earliest supporters and a former co-chairman for his presidential campaign, announced Tuesday that he was leaving the Democratic Party for good.
In a post published Tuesday on his website, Davis was vague about his future political endeavors, but declared: “If I were to run, it would be as a Republican. And I am in the process of changing my voter registration from Alabama to Virginia, a development which likely does represent a closing of one chapter and perhaps the opening of another.”
Davis, who represented Alabama’s 7th Congressional District from 2003 to 2011, was notably the first member of Congress outside of Illinois to endorse then-Sen. Obama’s 2008 presidential bid. And it was Davis who seconded the official nomination of Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
Along with making hints at the future, Davis reflected on his experiences as a Democrat, and condemned the path he believes the party is taking.
