Noelle Nikpour,
a sometime-Republican commentator on cable TV and a former Little Rock resident, got 1 percent of the vote for a last-place finish in a six-way Republican primary race for Congress Tuesday from Florida's 18th District.

She trailed in fund-raising, too, with only about $200,000, but was helped in that by contributions from a number of prominent Arkansans including Stephen LaFrance Jr., Andrea Rockefeller, John Tyson, Bud Cummins and Asa Hutchinson III.

We mentioned her candidacy earlier.
