In case you're counting

Posted By on Tue, Aug 21, 2007 at 12:18 PM

I had written this for the print edition, but it's not going to stay in the bag. Hillary Clinton raised $650,000 in Arkansas yesterday for her presidential campaign, Arkansas spokesman Robert McLarty said. That makes a total of almost $800,000 for the year from her former home state. By way of comparison, she raised more in one day than Mike Huckabee raised in the first six months of the year, about $550,000.

Crowds ranged from 200 to 300 at each of the three money events. At the final, a soiree at the Italianate Edgehill villla of interior designer Kaki Hockersmith and Max Mehlburger, 90 to 100 of the guests gave the max $2,300.

  • 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.
