Rep. Artur Davis Endorses Vernon Parker for Arizona CD9

Artur Davis is a former Democrat Congressman from Alabama. He caused quite a stir when he changed his registration to the Republican Party, and he delivered an outstanding speech at the Republican National Convention.  Davis is an eloquent spokesman for conservative priniciples that used to be held by all Americans, but which Democrats have largely abandoned.  You can hear more about his inspiring story at this link.

In the video below, recorded October 23rd, Rep. Davis endorses Vernon Parker, former mayor of Paradise Valley, for Arizona Congressional District 9 Representative.  Parker is another rising star within the Republican Party who is running against a self-described “Prada Socialist” with many questionable ties.  CD9 voters could hardly have a clearer choice.

More than just an endorsement, Davis’ remarks also deliver some important messages about the need to change the view that minorities have about the Republican Party.

Threatening the Left’s Narrative: Former Democrats Like Artur Davis

Daily Caller has posted a fine interview with Artur Davis, a former Democrat and US Representative from Alabama’s CD7 who switched to the Republican Party in December, 2011.

Now a Visiting Fellow at the Harvard Institute of Politics, Davis is a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard University and a cum laude J.D. graduate of Harvard Law School

Davis hung on in my former party, the once-great Democrat party of John F. Kennedy, until he could take it no longer.

Mr. Davis is now an eloquent spokesman for conservative principles that used to be held by all Americans but now may be found only on the Right.  This 17-minute discussion is packed with wisdom from start to finish.  And his view of what has gone wrong in the Democrat party comes from first-hand knowledge and exposure.  It doesn’t get more credible than this.

Nothing threatens our country’s neo-Marxist Democrat automatons more than an African-American who thinks for himself, walking right off the Democrat identity-group-think plantation.  He’s taking heat for his decision, and he’s bound to take a lot more.  But he’s a mensch — in this interview, he handles it with patience, calm, and deliberation.  And where he has gone, others will follow.  No wonder the Left feels that its narrative, and consequently its hold on power, is threatened.
