Women for Davis



Believe it or not, women support Jim Davis.

Actually, his campaign today announced a coalition of supporters - "Women for Davis" - backing him in his bid for governor. (See full news release in comments.)

Included are the 18-year-old twin daughters of former state House staffer Eric Draper. Davis helped create the state's first class size reduction plan in the mid-90s after Draper saw how crowded and distracting his girls' first-grade classroom was.

"I am excited that when I go to the polls for the first time in September, I will get to vote for a leader like Jim Davis," said Caitlin Draper, who is headed to Eckerd College.
