The Holt-Hutchinson ticket

Posted By on Sun, Jun 4, 2006 at 2:29 PM

Goor or bad for Asa! to have Jim Holt as a running mate? A little of both. A "delicate dance," is how Brummett puts it in his Sunday column, belatedly available.

I asked Holt the other day if he and Hutchinson had spoken since the election. He said they had. I asked what they talked about. Holt said they agreed there is a reason these offices are sought separately, rather than as a ticket, and that each man would need to run his own race.

"But please don't make that sound like we're distancing ourselves from each other," Holt said.

Yes, the delicate dance. You don't want to get too close. But you don't want to get so far away that you end up appearing to be dancing with somebody else - some shimmying, half-dressed Democrat, for example, in Asa's case.

The defining issue will be immigration, of course. It merely qualifies as the political and governmental story of the year.

  • 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.
