New Democratic chair -- UPDATE

Posted By on Fri, Sep 5, 2008 at 1:19 PM

Says here that Gov. Mike Beebe's pick to succeed the late Bill Gwatney as Democratic Party chair could be announced today.

Ideas? One correspondent suggests Jimmie Lou Fisher.

UPDATE: The choice should be a popular one. It's former governor and U.S. Senator David Pryor. It's subject to confirmation by the Democratic State Committee, date not yet set. Uh, I think chances are he'll get a "good vote."
