It's still Mike!

Opinion Research Associates has completed another poll for Stephens Media, with the governor's race results released first tonight on Fox 16.

Beebe 53

Hutchinson 35

The remainder to the two minor candidates and undecided.

We'll check the Stephens Capitol bureau's site for full results tomorrow.

Fox 16 also promises to post by tomorrow morning (Tuesday) an hour-long joint appearance by the major candidates at Philander Smith (shown here in a Brian Chilson photo). Fox 16's news account focused on the sales tax on groceries. Beebe said he'd eliminate it, but in phases. A$a contended the $700 million state surplus, will be sufficient to absorb a $270 million sales tax loss in one gulp. But he didn't mention that more than $600 million in needs are pending in school construction, Medicaid and prisons. Sounds like A$a got his arithmetic learning in one of those inadequate little schools he vows to save.
