Speaking of...

  • Rasmussen poll: Mike Ross up 2 over Asa Hutchinson

    August 28, 2014
    Rasmussen, a polling firm generally viewed as having a Republican bias, follows a poll yesterday with a narrow edge for Mark Pryor in the race for the U.S. Senate with a poll showing Democrat Mike Ross leading Republican Asa Hutchinson in the race for governor 46-44 /more/
  • Second District key for Arkansas Democrats

    August 28, 2014
    Voters in the 2nd Congressional District exhausted by the 2014 election season should get ready: They are target No. 1 for the stretch run of the campaign. /more/
  • Chris Christie in Arkansas for Hutchinson

    August 27, 2014
    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will campaign in Arkansas today for Republican Asa Hutchinson. We could use some advice for bridge-related traffic jams, what with the Broadway Bridge closure looming. /more/
  • Republicans attack Ross on old issue; he calls it slanderous

    August 26, 2014
    The Republican Party had dredged up a seven-year-old issue — Mike Ross' sale of the family drugstore — as in issue in this year's race for governor. /more/
  • Democrats press equal pay; lots to work with

    August 26, 2014
    Democrats tout equal pay for women on Women's Equality Day. They have plenty to work with — explicit opposition to legal protection for women on the part of such Republican candidates as J. French HIll. /more/
  • The Obamacare open line

    August 23, 2014
    Tonight's open line includes news that Arkansas Democrats are rallying around bread-and-butter populist themes — an increase in the minimum wage and support for expansion of health care coverage. (Pssst: That last thing? Just don't call it Obamacare.) /more/
  • Today, Asa likes teachers — some of them, anyway

    August 23, 2014
    Asa Hutchinson, the Republican candidate for governor, assembled some teachers who support him at the Capitol today. The Democratic Party was quick to remind voters of how Hutchinson insulted thousands of teachers after Democrat Mike Ross won the Arkansas Education Association endorsement in the race. /more/
  • The Civil Rights Come To Fayetteville Edition

    August 22, 2014
    The passage of a historic civil rights measure in Fayetteville, a surprise about-face at the Little Rock City Board, Jonesboro Police Chief Mike Yates’ derogatory comments about Jonesboro Sun police reporter Sunshine Crump, Mark Pryor inching towards saying the name that cannot be spoken and a coming legislative meeting on the Arkansas’s biggest retirement systems — all covered on this week's podcast. /more/
  • Democratic Party poll has good results for Democratic candidates

    August 21, 2014
    The Arkansas Democratic Party today released a summary of polling done for the party by Opinion Research Associates of Little Rock, the veteran opinion research firm. It shows Sen. Mark Pryor with a lead, but within the margin of error, over challenger Tom Cotton and shows Democrat Mike Ross in a dead heat with Republican Asa Hutchinson. /more/
  • 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? One key question of the Arkansas Senate race will be what is more politically potent, the name "Obamacare" (which Cotton will repeat while dodging policy specifics) or the law's more popular component parts (which Pryor is beginning to highlight while avoiding actually naming the law). /more/
