Artur Davis Files Paperwork For Ala. Gov.

Montgomery, AL – U.S. Rep. Artur Davis of Birmingham has now filed paperwork with the secretary of state to run for governor.

State law requires a candidate to file after spending $25,000 to seek a statewide office. Davis filed paperwork Friday afternoon. It shows that he is the sole member of his campaign committee for governor.

Davis filed the state report after his congressional campaign finance report showed payments to campaign staff and a rental fee for the hall in Birmingham where he kicked off his campaign.

Davis is not the first Democrat to file with the secretary of state to run for governor. Self-employed inventor Sam Franklin Thomas of Huntsville filed in March.
