Republicans hit bottom?

Posted By on Wed, Apr 25, 2007 at 5:58 AM

David Sanders says so, judging by lack of interest by bigger names in the job of state GOP chairman. As luck has it, I was talking to a young Republican about this very issue yesterday. He said Dennis Milligan of Saline County, who enjoys outgoing chair Gilbert Baker's support, might not be the only candidate for the chairmanship. He also thinks Rep. John Boozman is now the go-to guy on party matters in Arkansas, as the only elected Republican official of any stature, and Boozman's desires are not yet clear. It appears that a serious election challenge in 2008 was a major fact in Baker's decision to step down. That's, of course, another potential bright spot for Democrats.

UPDATE: A party insider informs me that Boozman indeed supports Milligan.
