“I talked to Congressman Artur Davis today to assure him of my abiding admiration of him as a leader who is engaged in a huge challenge.
I offer no challenge to his integrity as a leader. Representatives should each vote their conscience in the interest of their constituency.
There is a growing disparity among the black and the poor and we desperately need voices and votes.
Among the black and the poor, the infant mortality rate is higher, life expectancy is shorter, poverty is growing and unemployment is highest.
We need comprehensive healthcare that is more accessible and less expensive for all Americans. The historical Davis journey as a change agent continues and his latest quest deserves the support of the caring.”
