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.

Among the group of recipients who aren't exempt but are currently working, he said, "we found they’re averaging about 35 hours per week. So it’s not that they’re opting to not work ... . It’s more a matter of whether they have consistent work or not.”
