Pitching in for the land commissioner's race

ART FOR POLITICS' SAKE: Guy Bell prints to be auctioned at land commissioner fund-raiser.
  • ART FOR POLITICS' SAKE: Guy Bell prints to be auctioned at land commissioner fund-raiser.
Is there a statewide race that commands less attention than the race for state land commissioner? Doesn't mean that Democrat Mark Robertson isn't making a strong bid to challenge incumbent Republican John Thurston, something of a surprise winner four years ago.

I have an invite to a $50 fund-raiser for Robertson (not Thurston as I stupidly wrote originally) Thursday night at the Winslow Drive home of Clark Trim and Herink Throstrup (Colonial Wine and Spirts). Prints of work by artist Guy Bell, currently exhibited at Crystal Bridges, will be auctioned for the cause. The host list is star-studded: Barbara and David Pryor; Betty and Jim Guy Tucker; Sen. Joyce Elliott; Sen. David Johnson; Lottie Shackelford; JP Tyler Denton and many more.

Elvis Presley is also mounting a Libertarian candidacy in this race.

Other than polite applause when he introduced his mom and dad and a still moment as he led the crowd in a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance — his night didn't get much better from there.
