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.
