He is also a retirement financial adviser, an insurance agency owner and a former school teacher.

He was appointed to the Preston City Council in 1986, and was also elected mayor of the town in 1986, serving until his election to the House in 1991.

Minnesota House of Representatives

Davids was first elected in a special election on February 12, 1991, held after Rep. Elton Redalen resigned to accept appointment by Governor Arne Carlson as Minnesota's Commissioner of Agriculture. He was re-elected every two years until 2006, when he was unseated by Democrat Ken Tschumper in a close election separated by just 49 votes. He regained the seat in the 2008 election, and was re-elected in 2010. Prior to the 1992 legislative redistricting, the area he represents was known as District 32B.

He chaired the Agriculture and Rural Development Committee during the 2005-2006 biennium, and chaired the Commerce, Jobs, and Economic Development Committee from 1999-2004. He was also Speaker Pro Tempore during the 2005-2006 biennium.
