Former Alabama Lieutenant Governor Jere Beasley announced Monday that he will serve as Chairman of the Artur Davis for Governor Campaign.
“Throughout my involvement in Alabama politics over the years, I have witnessed Governors of all stripes; Republican and Democrats, liberal and conservative, but the best Governors had a definitive leadership quality. I see that in Artur Davis and that’s why I’m proud to Chair his campaign for Governor,” Beasley said. “I believe in Artur Davis’ ability to lead and bring people together to attract jobs and transform our state to unlock its full potential. He is the right man for the job, and I know that he can and will be Alabama’s next Governor.”
A veteran of Alabama politics, Beasley previously endorsed and supported Governors Bob Riley and Fob James, both Republicans. In addition, Beasley served as Lieutenant Governor from 1971 – 1979, under Governor George Wallace.
