This has got to hurt. It’s one thing to have the Dems in West Virginia distance themselves from you. They’re in a coal state, and Obama, the EPA, and the econuts of the world are destroying what small economy West Virginia has. So, Dems there have to move away from Obama and his extreme left agenda. And, so what if a convict in a Texas prison get 40% of the Democrat vote in the West Virginia primary. And so what if Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Kentucky all had over 40% votes against Obama in the Dem primaries? Obama wasn’t going to get these states in the general election anyway. (In Kentucky no one ran against Obama, but the Democrats of that state had over 40% vote “none of the above”.) I mean sure, this is pretty damning stuff, but as mentioned before, Obama wasn’t going to win in these places anyway.
But, what about a prominent former 4 term congressman in Virginia? Artur Davis …..
who represented Alabama’s 7th congressional district for four terms as a member of the Democratic party, wrote on his website on Tuesday that he has not yet made up his mind on whether or not to run in the future. However, he has decided to change his party affiliation.
“If I were to leave the sidelines, it would be as a member of the Republican Party that is fighting the drift in this country in a way that comes closest to my way of thinking: wearing a Democratic label no longer matches what I know about my country and its possibilities,” Davis wrote in a blog post.
Davis lost in a primary in Alabama’s gubernatorial election and moved to Virginia in 2010.

He’s got a couple of interesting posts on his blog (linked earlier). I’d stop by and say hey, but he doesn’t appear to have a comment section.
