Big haul

Frog legs and Clinton raise $600,000 for Beebe. And another $400,000 for the Democratic Party. And $70,000 for Dustin McDaniel.

Noted: Clinton raised about half as much again as Bush raised and he's no longer in public office. I figure that's about how the vote would turn out in Arkansas today in a Clinton-Bush matchup -- 60-40.

In addition to four fund-raisers (including the high-dollar, late-night soiree at Nu), Clinton entertained others. If you saw a crowd late Thursday afternoon on the terrace outside his private residence atop the library, that would have been the former president and the 22-member class of the Clinton School, gathered with him for a class photo and a rare VIP tour.

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson apparently felt the burn from KARK's exclusive Tuesday night on his plans to cut state support of War Memorial Stadium in half beginning July 1, 2018. He has a so-far secret plan to make the stadium self-sustaining. We bet that doesn't include state support.
