Whatever happened to ...

Posted By on Mon, May 19, 2008 at 4:48 PM

... Marty Ryall, the Star City flash and former Arkansas Republican Party chair?

He's been called in to play the cavalry as consultant to U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole's re-election campaign. From Daily Kos:

More evidence that Democratic State Sen. Kay Hagan has a legitimate chance of taking out Elizabeth Dole: Dole has recently changed her campaign manager, in the wake of Hagan's impressive victory in the Democratic primary and subsequent polls showing her highly competitive with Dole.

Best of all, as Senate Guru notes, Dole's new head honcho, Marty Ryall, has a lousy track record, having most recently guided gubernatorial candidate Bill Graham to a third-place finish with a lofty 9% of the vote in the North Carolina primary. Sounds like a real winner, Liddy.

The link to Senate Guru replays the troubled Arkansas Republican finances that existed when Ryall bid farewell.
