Holt v. Halter

Posted By on Thu, Jun 15, 2006 at 6:34 PM

There'll almost certainly be TV debates for the Beebe-Hutchinson gubernatorial race. But does anybody care about the race for lieutenant governor?

You bet they do. The Clinton School of Public Service (Skip Rutherford, prop.) will be extending an invitation shortly for Bill Halter and Jim Holt to meet in a "town meeting" format this fall, date and details subject to negotiation.

Rutherford, who we ran into at a Clinton Library reception for the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies national convention, said the race shouldn't be overlooked because two lieutenant governors -- Jim Guy Tucker and Mike Huckabee -- have become governor in recent years.

Plus, this particular matchup offers a good deal more potential sport than, say, the WR-Kurt Dilday contest.

  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
