Plotting the Arkansas governor's race rumor mill 

click to enlarge thebigpicture1-1.jpg

Last week, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel, long considered the frontrunner to succeed Gov. Mike Beebe, withdrew from the race, weeks after admitting to an extramarital affair. News of McDaniel's imminent withdrawl prompted former Lt. Gov. Bill Halter to declare his candidacy even before McDaniel formally announced his exit. On the Republican side, former U.S. Congressman Asa Hutchinson has announced (as has lightweight Curtis Coleman). Now with the Democratic frontrunner out of the picture and some Democrats still sore over Halter's tough campaign against Blanche Lincoln, a number of names of potential candidates have surfaced. Below, we offer our wholly unscientific take on the likelihood of their candidacy and what sort of leader they'd be.

  • Ore in Argenta

    On the short strip of North Little Rock's downtown — Argenta — news is always being made. A new restaurant, a new gallery, a new tech enterprise: The revitalization of this area continued apace in 2014, and there's already something new to look forward to in 2015. Not included here but worthy: new restaurant Mugs Cafe at 515 Main St. and a new acoustic music festival at The Joint.
