Argue endorses Halter for governor

Posted By on Tue, Apr 9, 2013 at 11:34 AM

The Bill Halter for Governor campaign announces that former state Sen. Jim Argue has endorsed Halter, currently the only announced Democratic candidate.

From the release:

"I strongly support Bill Halter for Governor, because he will push for continued progress in education for our state,” said Argue. “I know that Bill Halter will fight hard for the values that I and most Arkansans believe in."

Argue, gone from the legislature for more than four years, isn't necessarily a big vote mover, though he's a good signal to progressive Democrats, particularly in Pulaski County. But there's this unspoken element: Argue served a lot of years in the Senate with former U.S. Rep. Mike Ross, who's expected to announce for governor before long. You know that. Argue knows that. This, I think, is a clear signal about THAT.
