Onetime Obama ally to tout Romney at GOP convention

Former 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.

A former co-chairman of the 2008 Obama campaign, Davis, then a Democrat, seconded the official nomination of Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

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."
