Good press for the governor

Posted By on Fri, Dec 1, 2006 at 11:44 AM

A Republican consultant writing in The Hill says Gov. Mike Huckabee is on target in calling out Sen. John McCain, the supposed finance reformer, for a structural advantage in being able to use his senatorial campaign account for presidential exploratory work. State candidates cannot do the same.

But would somebody please tell such writers that Huckabee appears to be operating at no disadvantage, save lack of a state carryover. As his invitation to the Arkansas "put" party Dec. 16 shows, his Hope for America PAC can accept unlimited contributions. How will it be spent. Sayeth Huckabee:

The money we raise will be the seed money I need to travel to critical 2008 states and test my message for the direction our country needs to take.

  • 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.
