Lincoln and 2010 UPDATE

Posted By on Tue, Oct 7, 2008 at 9:20 AM

The Arkansas Project stirred up a little action the other day by mentioning Tim Griffin's opinion that at least two strong candidates were in waiting to oppose Sen. Blanche Lincoln in 2010. Nominees besides Huck?

UPDATE: Coincidentally, I just received a strong recommendation for a fellow named Tom Cotton, a Dover native, Harvard-educated lawyer who left the corporate law world to volunteer for infantry duty after 9/11. He's still serving in the Middle East, reportedly. He's also mentioned here. The story is that he's hankering to come back to Arkansas and make a race in 2010 and that he believes he can raise a good nestegg from college connections. Name recognition helps, of course. But what if a smart Republican populist emerged who attacked Lincoln on her coziness with the corporate community. A thought.

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
