U.S. Rep. Artur Davis, an early supporter of President Obama, made it official on February 6th. It wasn’t a surprise when Artur said he is running for Governor of Alabama. The announcement by the Montgomery native was made in stops in Birmingham and Montgomery. If elected, Artur would be the first African-American to win Alabama’s top office. With his announcement, the 41-year-old, Harvard-educated lawyer became the first Democratic candidate to officially throw his hat into the ring. Personally, I believe that Artur will be a very strong candidate. This leaves Lt. Gov. Jim Folsom and Commissioner Ron Sparks as two other Democrats who are the most likely to join the race. If they all run, it will make for a most interesting primary in 2010.
