Congressional Black Caucus expresses 'disdain' for Artur Davis


Artur Davis, the Democrat-turned-Republican speaking this evening at the GOP convention in Tampa, is on the receiving end of a negative open letter sent out by members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

"We are writing to express our disdain over several recent comments you have made about the important issues facing voters in November, your total distortion of President Barack Obama’s record, and your complete flip-flop on certain core principles you once held dear," the letter says.

Davis is catching flack for having switched political parties and for now delivering a speech tonight in support of Mitt Romney. The speech is set for the 7 p.m. hour.

The letter is signed by:

Chairman Emmanuel Cleaver (MO-05)

Rep. Corrine Brown (FL-03)

Rep. G. K. Butterfield (NC-01)

Rep Donna Christensen (VI-AL)

Rep. James E. Clyburn (SC-06)

Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (MI-14)

Rep. Donna F. Edwards (MD-04)

Rep. Marcia Fudge (OH-11)

Rep. Barbara J. Lee (CA-09)

Rep. John Lewis (GA-05)

Rep. Gregory Meeks (NY-06)

Rep. Cedric Richmond (LA-02)

Rep. Terri A. Sewell (AL-07)

Rep. Bennie Thompson (MS-02)
