The rallying continues

Posted By on Mon, Oct 27, 2008 at 4:47 PM

The Democratic Party has announced that Mary Steenburgen and Ted Danson will join Sen. Mark Pryor and his dad, David Pryor, the Party chairman, in a round of political appearances around Arkansas this week. Pryor probably can get along against his Green opposition well enough, but they'll all be touting the Obama-Biden ticket, too.

ON THE JUMP, TOO: Dennis "What we need is another 9/11" Milligan pouts about the Dems having an attractive pair like Mary and Ted to campaign for them.


Academy Award-winning actress and Arkansas native Mary Steenburgen, award-winning actor Ted Danson, DPA Chairman David Pryor, and U.S. Senator Mark Pryor will headline events tonight and tomorrow in Fort Smith, Jonesboro, Fayetteville, and Hazen.

Mary Steenburgen may have Arkansas roots, but in no way is her ultra-liberal ideology representative of the Arkansas voters she and her husband, Ted Danson, are attempting to court this week.  We have yet to see Senator Obama himself come to Arkansas to ask for support; instead, he continues to send surrogates who fall far short of their assignment. 


Arkansas is a conservative state.  We care about protecting our country, our families, and our pocketbooks.  Sen. McCain’s policies of tax relief, strong support for small business, and protection of our family values are right for Arkansas, and right for America.
