Davis to Visit Montgomery and Birmingham Friday

Montgomery, Alabama –
(AP) - U.S. Rep. Artur Davis has scheduled
events Friday in Birmingham and Montgomery to discuss his interest
in running for governor of Alabama in 2010.
A spokeswoman for the Democratic congressman says he will speak
at noon Friday at the Harbert Center in Birmingham and then at 5
p.m. at the state Department of Archives and History in Montgomery.
Birmingham is in Davis' congressional district and Montgomery is
his hometown.
Davis told reporters in December that he expected to run for
governor, but that he would save a formal announcement until early
February.
Also considering a Democratic race for governor in 2010 are
Lieutenant Governor Jim Folsom Junior and state Agriculture
Commissioner Ron Sparks.
