Heavyweight bout in Faulkner County

Posted By on Thu, May 29, 2008 at 6:01 AM

Brummett chats with Religious Right Republican Sen. Gilbert Baker about his coming contest with Democrat Joe White in the fall.

Do we see Baker's attack taking shape? The challenge is coming, he suggests, from "Little Rock Democrats." This might surprise long-time Conway businesman White.

Why didn't Baker just complete the thought and call his opponents "Nancy Pelosi-style Democrats." I guess in Baker's mind, Little Rock is just about as unholy as San Francisco. Makes you wonder why a guy would raise a quarter-million-dollars for the right to come down here so often.
