Davis Not Discouraged by Obama's Alabama Vote

Alabama Democratic Cong. Artur Davis might need a microscope if he's looking at Tuesday's presidential results for evidence that Alabama is ready to elect a black Democrat for governor.

Obama took just 39 percent of the vote in Alabama. And in a state that is about 70 percent white, an Associated Press exit poll found that just one in 10 whites supported Obama.

But Davis insists he's not reading too much into Barack Obama's poor showing in the state, where Davis served as his campaign head.

Davis said the presidential results aren't necessarily comparable to his potential 2010 gubernatorial bid.
