The Asa Hutchinson for Governor campaign said Monday it had raised $420,000 in August, bringing the total for the general election campaign to $3.46 million. He spent more than $400,000 in in the month on TV time and reports $667,000 in cash on hand.

Democrat Mike Ross hasn't filed his latest report yet. (UPDATE: He raised $50,000 less than Hutchinson in the month.) But a month ago, his general election campaign had raised $5.2 million. Ross raised about $4 million in the primary and carried $970,000 over. Hutchinson raised almost $2 million in the primary and carried $560,000 over. He had a $2 million quarter early in his campaign, but raised $300,000 in his most recent monthly report.

I ran into Hutchinson and his wife, Susan, and a couple of campaigners having dinner last night at Flying Fish. He was relaxed and friendly. Dare I say it? Acting like a front-runner.

Susan Hutchinson gigged me for references to money Hutchinson made in his D.C. lobbying days after service in the Bush administration. She'd like to know where it is, she said. Fair comment. I'd joshed her about joining Asa and J. French Hill in the growing Republican TV ad ranks of people who drive well-used cars. (Hey, mine is more than 11 years old.)

  • Rapert compares Bill Clinton to Orval Faubus

    Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway)  was on "Capitol View" on KARK, Channel 4, this morning, and among other things that will likely inspire you to yell at your computer screen, he said he expects someone in the legislature to file a bill to do ... something about changing the name of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.
  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
