The values party

Posted By on Thu, May 28, 2009 at 6:25 PM

Some Republicans have been hungering to out former evangelist Curtis Coleman's unpleasant divorce 16 years ago. Does the potential Senate candidate have a "Tim Hutchinson problem" among primary voters? He took the question head-on on a radio interview today. He said  his former wife will vouch -- and vote -- for him. Jason Tolbert reports. 

Sounds like old news to me. More relevant might be a review of his Safe Foods' company's work with the state during the administration of his friend Mike Huckabee.

By the way: Coleman's website. He includes endorsements from his son and Brenda Turner, Huck's former chief of staff. Says Ms. Turner, participle dangling:

As a businessman trying to provide jobs in Arkansas, I believe Curtis Coleman understands the balance of government regulation and free enterprise that America needs. In the U.S. Senate, he would represent the conservative values and interests of our state with diligence and integrity and would fight to protect the rights of taxpayers across the country.

David Kinkade, former A. Hutchinson hand, at The Arkansas Project comments on this early season diversion. Divorce? Big deal.
