The great mentioner re Sen. Lincoln

Posted By on Mon, Nov 17, 2008 at 10:25 AM

Now comes the Southern Political Report with three names being mentioned to run against U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln in 2010. The names: Investment banker Rick Calhoun, D.C. lawyer/Army officer Tom Cotton and banker French Hill.

By the way, I thought I heard local Republican commentator David Sanders say the other day that the Arkansas business community was tired of Sen. Lincoln. Tired of slavish devotion (estate tax elimination, consumer-punishing bankruptcy laws, protection of farm welfare payments, extraordinary service to the retail sector's interests)? Doubtful.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
