Mobile mayor backs Davis gubernatorial bid

Mobile, AL – - Mobile's first African-American mayor is
trying to help U.S. Rep. Artur Davis become Alabama's first
African-American governor.
Mayor Sam Jones held a news conference Monday in Mobile, where
he issued his first endorsement in a statewide campaign.
Jones, a Democrat like Davis, has a positive vision for the
future of Alabama's economy and is not satisfied to let Alabama lag
behind neighboring states any longer.
Jones was elected Mobile's first African-American mayor in 2005
and was re-elected this year. Jones said Davis can get elected in
Alabama and he has the potential to become one of the state's
greatest governors.
