ELECTIONS: Attorney general

Posted By on Tue, May 23, 2006 at 6:26 PM

Comment here on the Democratic primary race for attorney general. Who's the next Ray Thornton-Jim Guy Tucker-Bill Clinton-Mike Beebe? Or is the McDaniel-Suskie-Herzfeld winner naught but a Joe Purcell?

FIRST RETURNS: Huge early lead for McDaniel, with 44 percent, and Herzfeld trailing with 30. But there are no Pulaski votes in the totals so far. Presumably, Suskie will run stronger in Pulaski.. (Indeed, a reader says Suskie numbers in precinct he saw were huge in Pulaski. So hang on.)

LATER: Regional differences evened out and McDaniel still held a lead, but Suskie was closing on Herzfeld with the promise of a huge pickup in Pulaski based on his wide margin in the one box that was released, the big early voting total. Suskie had 59 percent in that box. We go to bed with the prospect of all three candidates bunched in the 30s, but McDaniel and Suskie trending toward a runoff.

  • Trump tariffs hit farmers hard

    Well, the trade war has begun and the early returns for farmers are not good — sharp reductions in the prices for soybeans and corn. You may have heard that Arkansas, which overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump, has some agricultural interests, particularly in soybeans.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
