Winds of change?

Posted By on Sat, Aug 26, 2006 at 11:09 AM

A veteran blog reader,  fearful of leaving any telltale fingerprints on a blog post, sends along this tidbit to share relative to how the winds are blowing in the race for governor:

I work for a state agency. Our director has been a staunch Huckabite and Republican her entire public life.  For her entire tenure the only picture on her desk was her with Huckabee.  Now the only picture is her with Beebe.  I hate to get my hopes up, but she certainly senses a breeze.

This might be a good time to note that Ron Fuller, former finance chair for Huckabee and one of his appointees to the ABC, says he is backing Beebe. And we noticed, too, that his ABC cohort, J.J. Vigneault, another long-time Republican operative, has been contributing to Democrats this year, including Secretary of State Charlie Daniels.

And speaking of contributions: have you heard the same stories we've heard of angry phone calls from A$a to people presumed to be Republican who turned up on Beebe's contribution lists? Of the I-won't-forget-this tenor. We can tell you we know a couple of people who don't respond well to threats of this sort.

  • 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.
