Disorder in the court race

Posted By on Thu, May 15, 2008 at 5:42 AM

Brummett is back on the Courtney Henry-Ron Williams race for Court of Appeals in NW Ark. Young Timothy Hutchinson is arguing that it's not partisanship in Williams' hiring of right-wing extremist Jim Holt as a political consultant. OK, then. But it's scary as hell about the kind of judge Williams would be, also reflected in mailings of other nut groups.

More to come on this race. Oppo research has turned up some bodacious exaggerations by Williams of his experience. The fear is high that it will be a tough race in the seven-county district for a sane candidate. Nearly all the election action in the district is in Republican primaries in Benton County. Turnout elsewhere will be low.

PS -- A Republican source says not to worry. He says Holt's association with Williams hurts the candidate with a broad swath of Republicans and that Henry's TV advertising is heavy. He predicts a win for Henry even in Benton County. Interesting. We shall see.
