Congressman Artur Davis
Kicking off the event is Congressman Artur Davis. A former four-term Congressman and former Democrat, Davis made headlines this spring when he joined the Republican Party. Davis was one of the national co-chairs for Obama’s 2008 campaign and made one of the nominating speeches for Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. In 2009 and 2010 Davis voted against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the only member of the Congressional Black Caucus to do so. In time, Davis became increasingly critical of the Obama Administration policies and the liberal turn of the Democrat Party. In 2012, Congressman Davis joined the Republican Party and moved to Virginia. He is speaking at the Republican National Convention in Tampa and is campaigning on behalf of Mitt Romney in Virginia.
