The leaders of Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform have endorsed Artur Davis for Governor. The chair, Birmingham lawyer Lenora Pate, endorsed Artur at the State Capitol and said Artur is the only candidate for Governor who is calling for a constitutional convention. Two other leaders, Lucy Tufts and Karlos Finley, made their endorsements in Mobile. While each of them said they were endorsing as individuals and were not speaking for the group, it’s clear Artur has the support of lots of folks on the reform issue. It’s abundantly clear that the 1901 Constitution protects the rich and powerful to the detriment of ordinary citizens. According to all polls, an overwhelming majority of Alabamians believe constitutional reform is needed and they favor the convention approach. The powerful special interests oppose reform.
