Congressman Davis says Pitt Should Stay

Birmingham, AL – Congressman Artur Davis is defending Alabama Democratic Party chairman Redding Pitt. Davis says some Democratic leaders are wrongly blaming Pitt for the party's lackluster showing in last week's election. Davis says the party's problems are with policies, not personalities. Four Democratic leaders have asked Pitt to resign -- Lieutenant Governor Lucy Baxley, Agriculture Commissioner Ron Sparks, House Speaker Seth Hammett and Senate President Pro Tem Lowell Barron.
