THERE was a definite message being sent out by Team Davis yesterday, and it was clear from the moment the candidate entered the room for her official campaign launch.
What a stark contrast she made to the standing-room-only packed house that attended the ribbon-cutting on Gay Mitchell's campaign the day before.
The Fine Gael candidate had been surrounded by most of Fine Gael's parliamentary party, dozens of councillors and, of course, the Taoiseach himself, who all cheered him on enthusiastically/dutifully.
