The local beat

Posted By on Mon, May 11, 2009 at 11:21 PM

A lot of local races are starting to take shape.  Talk Business has a good run-down of the day's announcements and events.  Not mentioned in the previous link, Rep. Jonathan Dismang, R-Beebe, announced that he will be forming an exploratory committee to decide whether or not to run for the Senate seat in District 29.  Dismang gets a thumbs up for trying to stand up for the locals in the face of the gas industry onslaught, thumbs down for standing alongside Dick Armey in his fly-by opposition to the cigarette tax increase passed by the legislature this year.
