One man who is trying to fix America

Monday, June 27, 2011

John Davis and his wife, Debra, made a stop in Cherokee on Wednesday. Davis is running for President of the United States, and is making his way across the country with the goal of stopping in every county in the U.S. Photo by Mike Leckband.
It's no secret that the 2012 Presidential Election season has started and several Republican candidates have announced their intention to run for the White House.

Most of the candidates who are running receive a large amount of national attention, but some candidates have to bring attention to their campaign by hitting the road.

John Davis of Grand Junction, Colo. is one such candidate. Davis has vowed to visit every county in America. So far he has visited 707 counties in Iowa, Florida and South Carolina, and he plans to hit Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula next.

Davis is a plain-spoken man who carries a large pipe wrench that's painted like the American Flag. "I'm very patriotic about my country," said Davis when he stopped at the Copper Cup in Cherokee on Wednesday.

Davis has been a self-employed homebuilder for 30 years, and he has never held any political office. He stated that God spoke to his heart and that's what made him make the decision to run for President.

"There is a lot of hard work to be done in this country and we'll have to learn to do a lot more with a lot less," said Davis. He also stated that he is not looking for the limelight, but is out to serve his country.

Davis believes that he can bring his business experience to a country that needs some experience right now, and Davis says he has the heart and the backbone to get the job done.

The conservative Republican has offered his own contract with America in which he pledges, if elected, to balance the federal budget, promote term limits, uphold the constitution of the United States, provide common sense leadership, provide less government, and to promote border control and work visas, along with citizenship for law abiding aliens.

Davis and his wife, Debra, have six children and four grandchildren. To learn more about John Davis for President visit johndavisforpresident.org.
