Davis adds Bright, Strange campaign manager to team
Davis, D-Birmingham, announced on Monday that he has hired David Mowery of Mowery Consulting Group LLC and Joey Ceci of Main Street Strategies in Huntsville as senior advisers.
Mowery, who recently started his own consulting operation in Montgomery, managed the highly successful campaigns of Bright and Strange. Bright was the first Democrat to win in the 2nd Congressional District in more than 40 years.
Ceci managed the campaigns of U.S. Reps. Bud Cramer and Parker Griffith, both Huntsville Democrats. Davis applauded Ceci's knowledge and experience in north Alabama and Mowery's work in south Alabama and the Wiregrass.
"When it comes to winning elections in Alabama, Joey Ceci and David Mowery are at the top of the ladder," Davis said in a statement. "Both Joey and David have a proven track record of winning hard-fought races in parts of our state that have been trending Republican. They are also experts in fending off the Republican attack machine that gears up every two years. ... Joey Ceci and David Mowery give us a powerful one-two punch in two regions that may hold the key to the 2010 governor's race."
Mowery has also worked on the campaigns of former Gov. Don Siegelman, Mobile County District Attorney John Tyson, and Sam Jones, who was elected the first black mayor of Mobile.
