One toke over the line

Posted By on Thu, May 18, 2006 at 1:29 PM

News release:

Longtime Little Rock based political activist Glen Schwarz will formally announce as a Green Party candidate for the Arkansas District 2 U.S. Congressional seat currently held by Congressman Vic Snyder, at the Green Party State Meeting, being held at the Clinton Community Center, Saturday May 20, at 12noon.

"This is the northernmost frontier of my district,"  Schwarz commented. "Truly an appropriate locale and time. With me in the race there is an outside chance that Congressman Vic Snyder will be brought home for a term. Then either I or the Republican will be sent to Washington, whichever of us wins a plurality of the votes. So it is important that a decent Republican wins the primary vote next Tuesday. For this reason I'm voting in the Republican primary and endorsing Tom Formicola for the nomination. I also like Chuck Banks for Lt. Governor."

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
