Green Party nominees

Posted By on Sat, Jun 21, 2008 at 4:36 PM

On the jump, find the candidates nominated by the Green Party of Arkansas at its convention at Juanita's restaurant today.

The list includes Richard Carroll for House District 39, where Democratic sex offender Dwayne Dobbins had been unopposed. No further info at the moment.

There are candidates for U.S. Senate and all but the First Congressional District.

UPDATE: A correspondent who correctly indicated last night that the Green Party would field a candidate in District 39 descibed the nominee as a union man who was nominated in absentia because he was working Saturday. Sounds like a good start on a solid candidate.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
