Political doings

Posted By on Sat, Nov 8, 2008 at 6:04 PM

I"ve been out. The e-mail has been pouring in.

One, from a Republican of long acquaintance who adds a countervailing voice to our comments regularly, tells me that Dennis "What We Need is Another 9/11" Milligan, resigned today as chairman of the Arkansas Republican Party. Heck, the Repubs had a decent year in Arkansas.

UPDATE: My original correspondent -- also David Kinkade at The Arkansas Project -- now say Milligan hasn't resigned. He's just served notice that he won't seek another term as chair.

I'm also informed that state Rep. Steve Harrelson was re-elected yesterday as leader of the Democratic caucus and that Rep. Kathy Webb of LR was elected vice chair in a contested race.

Also, Andrew DeMillo writes about the somewhat rockier second legislative session ahead for Gov. Mike Beebe.

  • Sabin's subterfuge in the race for mayor has roots in rigged city government

    The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that an ethics complaint has been filed saying that the exploratory committee Rep. Warwick Sabin created to prepare for a run for Little Rock mayor was a subterfuge to avoid the city ordinance that doesn't allow campaign fundraising to begin until five months before the November 2018 election.Of course it is.
