Davis and Cohn have spent much time in Iowa and New Hampshire
raising these issues. Due largely to their efforts all major Democratic
candidates have agreed to spend $6 billion annually on Global AIDS.
Approximately 3 times what Bush requested for 2004. We need to

the huge grassroots

unveiled in his 2003 State of the Union address. Davis has been the
