Davis statement on Arrington endorsement of Sparks

Alex Goepfert, spokesman for the gubernatorial campaign of U.S. Rep. Artur Davis, released the following statement on former Birmingham Mayor Richard Arrington Jr., endorsing Ron Sparks, the other Democrat who has announced his bid for governor.

"Congressman Davis has great respect for Mayor Arrington's legacy and his leadership but, as Mayor Arrington found out when he supported Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama, and as he recently discovered in the city council elections, Birmingham voters are quite capable of making their own decisions. We are confident that Birmingham voters who have voted for Artur Davis in record numbers in his last two contested races will also make their own independent judgment about the kind of leadership that Davis will provide as governor."
