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.
