Barely a month into the race for Governor of Alabama, Artur Davis is already shaking up the status quo. He's running a different kind of campaign -- and people are taking notice.
Just last week, Politico, a D.C. publication, described the grumbling coming from some of the "Montgomery-based power brokers who have dominated the state’s political scene for decades." They're not happy about the kind of change Artur Davis wants to bring to Alabama and the way he'll shake up Montgomery.
Let's be clear: Artur Davis is not going to let a set of entrenched forces with tired old ideas tell us we can't change things.
That's where you come in. To overcome the insiders and power brokers who don't believe Alabama is ready for the 21st century, we're going to need lots of help from people like you. And it starts right now.
Different kind of campaign? Not hardly. People taking notice? Oh yeah, we're taking notice. But not the kind he wants. Looks to me like Artur Davis is indeed going to let entrenched forces with tired old ideas tell him he can't change things. He certainly isn't listening to non-entrenched new forces tell him how and what what things need to be changed.
We know some of the insiders are grumbling. We know they feel threatened. But that doesn't bother Artur Davis.
After all, he's not running to represent the insiders -- he's running to represent you.
Together, we'll leave no stone unturned as we reach out to every single voter across the state and work to unlock Alabama's potential.
Really? He's running to represent ME? And he's going to reach out to every single voter and leave no stone unturned? Really?
It goes on to beg for my money about 4 times. The answer is NO YOU CAN'T Artur! You can't have my money or my vote. You pretend to 'reach out to the people' then just ignore what they say and continue with your own agenda, the people's ideas be damned. Until that changes you won't get my money or my vote. Do keep sending me the emails though. I find them very amusing.
