WaPo: Davis Runs From Bush Record

Lisa Rein of the Washington Post has written a new article about the Andrew Hurst campaign today, It Just Seems Like Bush Is in the Race in which it describes how Tom Davis is trying to run away from his record of supporting President Bush.

the Northern Virginia congressman looks as though he is running for his political life.
says the article

"Think of everything the administration has done," Hurst said. "Ninety percent of it, Tom Davis has supported. It's a perfect storm for a guy like me."

This is in fact true, according to the DCCC Davis has voted with President Bush 87% and with the House GOP leadership, 89% of the time. Yet Davis claims he’s a moderate, according to the article,
"I have my own identity," Davis said. "Time and again, I have stood up for the values of this region.
Davis, who lives in Vienna with his wife, state Sen. Jeannemarie Devolites Davis (R-Fairfax), is quick to distance himself from the Bush administration on some issues. "I've been critical of the administration in many aspects of their conduct of the war,"

Mr. Davis you are no moderate, and your electorate realizes this!
