BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Artur Davis, an early
supporter of Barack Obama with uncanny similarities to the new
president, is seeking to make history too.

Davis announced his Democratic candidacy for governor Friday in
a bid to be the first black to win Alabama's top office.

The 41-year-old, Harvard-educated lawyer ended months of
speculation over his plans at a noon announcement in Birmingham.

He spoke to a downtown crowd made up largely of whites, whose votes will be crucial if he has any shot at victory in 2010.
