Video: Rep. Connolly Welcomes Possible Artur Davis (D? R?) Run Against Him in 2014


This is amusing, per the story that former Rep. Artur Davis (D? R? Who the heck knows) might be considering a run against Rep. Gerry Connolly in 2014. By the way, I’ve heard a good deal about Davis, none of it good in any way. If he runs against Connolly, my guess is he’d get utterly blown out, but go for it!!! LOL

Chris Cillizza: I cannot let you go, I find this story fascinating. A former Alabama Democratic Congressman named Artur Davis who ran for governor in 2010 and lost the primary is being rumored to consider switching parties and running against Gerry Connolly at some point in the future. You worried?

Rep. Connolly: I welcome this development. First of all, it would seem to indicate the Republicans are conceding 2012, I welcome that. Secondly, the fact that they feel that they need to recruit a former member of Congress, a Democrat from Alabama who does not yet live in our district, to run against me in 2014 is a very welcome development and I look forward to debating him should he win the Republican nomination two years from now.
