Never mind Blanche ...

.... What about Beebe?

Roby Brock explores the other great statewide race on the ballot in 2010 -- Gov. Mike Beebe's expected coronation to a second term. The Republicans must field a candidate to continue automatic ballot qualification, even if it means throwing Party Chair Doyle Webb into the fray (would he expect a salary?)

Not to worry: Webb seems to think there are several up-and-coming GOP gunslingers looking to build a political name who'll be willing to make the race. Might even produce a contested primary. Or so goes the speculative talk almost a year before filing deadline.
