Lindsey is out with Arkansas Week; sorry for slow posting this a.m. To start off, how about this article from the New York Times about Mitt Romney's cozy relationship with casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, whose business is being investigated by the Justice Department that Romney, if elected, would have some sway over.

  • Obamacare and the Mark Pryor-Tom Cotton Senate race

    August 21, 2014
    Yesterday, Sen. Mark Pryor did something that got national attention: he released an ad that actually took credit for the benefits of Obamacare. Cotton's response was surprisingly muted. Could this be the latest sign that the Obamacare attack doesn't pack the punch it once did?

    June 12, 2014
    Tom Cotton skips in-person attendance at Delta meeting, not surprising given his lack of support for Delta Regional Authority and other grassroots government program. Not too surprising in this context that Cotton has been endorsed by Mitt Romney, also dismissive of that "47 percent" helped by government programs. /more/
