Davis is a new Congressman in a district created after the 1990 census. Like his constituents, he is moderate: pro-choice and for a semiautomatic-weapons ban. And like his Republican brethren, he opposes raising taxes to balance the budget. He is also one of only a few freshmen to be made chairman of a subcommittee, one overseeing the District of Columbia.
