Let Pryor have it

Posted By on Fri, Mar 30, 2007 at 2:22 PM

Thanks to Brummett blog for pointing me to a conservative blog quoting Mike Huckabee as saying he will not run against Mark Pryor in 2008, no matter what.

I was thinking about the Pryor race this morning and wondering whether the senator had done too much of a favor in martyring Bud Cummins in the course of opposing the installation of Tim Griffin in Little Rock to carry out the Rovian mission of a monolithic Republican government. Cummins has become the Republican even Democrats speak warmly of, not a bad posture. And he ran a pretty good race against Vic Snyder once upon a time. Several people tell me that Cummins retains an interest in elected offiice, but not U.S. Senate in 2008.
