Alabama Coalition to Consider Democratic Candidates

Two leaders of the Alabama New South Coalition say U.S. Rep. Artur Davis appeared to be the front-runner for the group's endorsement in the Democratic race for governor, until he became the only member of the Congressional Black Caucus to vote against the federal health care bill.

Now President Robert Avery and President Emeritus Hank Sanders say Saturday's endorsement meeting by the predominantly black political group is too close to call.

Davis' opponent, Agriculture Commissioner Ron Sparks, favored the federal health care plan.

About 150 to 200 New South delegates are expected in Montgomery to hear Davis and Sparks Saturday. Then the delegates will vote on an endorsement.

    I think Mr.Artur Davis did the right thing in voting against the federal health care bill. And should still be the front runner for Governor of Alabama!
