Alabama Congressman Artur Davis, who was the first member of Congress not from Illinois to endorse President Obama in 2008, will be a featured speaker at the Republican National Convention and will presumably endorse Mitt Romney for President.
former co-chairman of the 2008 Obama campaign, Davis, then a Democrat, seconded
the official nomination of Obama at the 2008 Democratic National
Davis, who is disappointed with the Obama presidency and radical policies, recently announced he is joining the Republican Party and
supporting Mitt Romney.
"The perspectives and
ideas (Davis and other headliner speakers) bring to the convention stage will show all Americans that
Romney and Ryan are the ticket to a better future," GOP Chairman Reince Priebus said. "Former Congressman
Davis especially will give voice to the frustration and disappointment
felt among those who supported President Obama in 2008 and are now
hungry for a new direction."
