Mobile Mayor Sam Jones endorses Artur Davis for governor

Two-term Mobile Mayor Sam Jones endorsed U.S. Rep. Artur Davis, D-Birmingham, in his race to be the next governor of Alabama.
During an event Monday at the Battle House Hotel in Mobile, Jones praised Davis' leadership ability, experience, and vision. The endorsement was Jones' first ever in a statewide campaign, according to Davis' campaign.
"Artur Davis and I share a common approach to leadership," Jones said. "Congressman Davis solves problems by bringing people together across traditional dividing lines like partisanship, race and ideology.
"A vitally important quality that distinguishes Artur Davis from the other candidates in this campaign for governor is his positive vision for the future of Alabama's economy. Artur Davis is not satisfied for our state to lag behind our neighbors any longer, not when we have so much talent and so much potential right here in Alabama."
Jones, a former Mobile County commissioner, was elected the first black mayor of Mobile in 2005 and was reelected unopposed in 2009.
