  2. I have to wait to see that…..

  3. James B, I think Davis’ polling numbers may have taken a severe hit due to alienating many in the state’s African American political establishment who HATE the man for voting against Obama’s Economic Stimulus, Health Care Reform plan, and other things.

    Comment by Conservative Democrat | May 28, 2010 | Reply

    • He’s really in a bad place constantly moving to the right to keep votes…which loses him other natural votes….

      Same thing Harold Ford Jr. did in Tenn

  4. Wh cares about Davis?

    Alabama aint about to elect a Black Governor!

    I like my nuts certified

    Besides this goof is bound to make Alabama the laughingstock of the nation

    And take the heat off South Carolina

    Southern Republicans!

  5. I would agree…but Obama IS the president..anything COULD happen…..

    I still think he ain’t gonna make it….sorry

  6. Very unlikely Roy Moore will be the GOP Nominee. He has too much baggage. I’m torn between Byrne and James. I like both. Difficult to decide whom I’m going to support on Tuesday.

    Comment by Daniel G. | May 28, 2010 | Reply

  7. What “baggage?”

    This is ALABAMA

    The Republicans down there regard Moore as thoroughly mainstream

    Like most non southerners

    You have NO idea how really extreeme these lunatics are

  8. Conservative Democrat

    what you trying to???

    I hope you don’ t SQUASH this century long dream of having an African American Governor in Alabama

    especially a GOOD MAN like Arthur Davis who was looking out for his constituents by rejecting the Obama Health Crappy Plan

  9. Arthur Davis POLL numbers are looking good

    Come Tuesday I want all you down in BAMA to help your neighbors get to the polls

  18. As I expected…..The Scott Brown thing was in fact……. the result of a lousy Coakley run….

    Comment by jamesb101 | June 1, 2010 | Reply

  19. the Scott Brown WIN was because Obama couldn’t afford to have Coakley on Capitol Hill complaining about the war in Afghanistan

  24. Arthur Davis is a G_D send

    An African American DEMOCRAT opposed to the WORST policies put forth by Obama

    • To get his butt elected…..

      Comment by jamesb101 | June 1, 2010 | Reply

      • Still talking about Davis?

        The high point of his campaign is tonight

        Its all downhill from herre to his defeat in November

        The idea that a Deep South Red State is going to elect a Black Democrat Governor is ludicrous

        Comment by My Name Is jack | June 1, 2010

  25. lol, i feel honored but that said if davis wins in november i would be shocked. i just think that aint happening. alabama is just too ruby red for ANY dem let alone a african american. i could be wrong but i DOUBT IT SERIOUSLY. i want him to make it. davis winning in alabama is like a rightwing nutjob winning very blue new state.

    Comment by Terry Green | June 1, 2010 | Reply

  26. agreed…..he’s probably so far to the right…you couldn’t REALLY consider him a democrat…..

    Comment by jamesb101 | June 1, 2010 | Reply

  27. alabama is the same state that brought us george wallace, voted gop for president for 30 years and had no dem in the chair for like 16 years. i see davis has became a blue dog dem to court more moderate to right leaning alabamans. a none starter for the general. if a redneck rightwinger has a pick between a rightwing real goper and a johnny come lately blue dog dem he will pick the real conservative everytime. just being realistic.

    ———–

    I believe it is because Arthur Davis has thought the policies through and realizes they are harmful policies

    taking a break

    looking forward to a cigar, beer, and thinking of Conservative Democrat and the DREAM WE have shared about Davis winning

    Comment by Timothy Leal | June 1, 2010 | Reply

  29. will not work tim. obama lost alabama by 20 points in 2008. even bill clinton lost alabama in both 1992 and 1996 when he was wining big nationwide in those years. if davis wins in alabama that would mean dems all over the country is mopping the floor with gopers. i admit dems will lose seats in november regardless. just less than gopers here and nationally have been perdicting.

  30. Whoever wants to say there’s any state (or territory) in the Union where someone should abstain from running because of his or her race?

    That said, I can’t see Artur (no H) Davis winning Alabama. It has a large Afro-American minority (26.2%), but it’s not as big as Mississippi’s (37.5%), Louisiana’s (31.6%), Maryland’s (28.9%) or South Carolina’s (28.4%) . And while Obama’s race helped him to carry the Democratic electorate in the Southern primaries, he won none of the Deep South states in November, even with much higher black turnout, because of the racial alignment of the parties (Southern GOP = non-black; D = almost all of the black vote + about a third of the white vote).

  34. Folks, Davis is MODERATE pro-life, pro-gun, pro-capital punishment, etc.,

    He’ll win the Democratic nomination tonight, but I see the GOP primary going into a runoff between James and Byrne.

    Comment by Conservative Democrat | June 1, 2010 | Reply

  35. Jack, do you have problems with African Americans winning statewide office in the South ?

    Thurbert Baker, Mike Thurmond in GA and many others have held down-ballot statewide offices in other Southern states.

    Comment by Conservative Democrat | June 1, 2010 | Reply

    • No

      I have problems with silly cheerleading practiced by you and some others

      Davis is not going to be elected Governor

      Its as simple as that

      And your incessant blabbering that he is

      Is annoying as well as absurd

      Comment by My Name Is jack | June 1, 2010 | Reply

  36. Conservative Democrat

    Davis can win this thing

    It is all about GALVANIZING the voters

    Obama did it

    and NOW Davis must do it

  37. The Davis machine needs to build strong in Birmingham and Montgomery and use the SCATTER EFFECT from those two hubs

    with a constant build-up and SCATTER EFFECT from those two cities ALL SUMMER and FALL

    DAVIS WILL WIN

    Comment by Timothy Leal | June 1, 2010 | Reply

  38. The Davis plan

    Guaranteeing African American voters feel comfortable with Davis

    Guaranteeing the YOuth will step up for Davis

    PLENTY of face time with OLd time DEmocrats
