Somebody's gotta lose UPDATE

Posted By on Wed, Jul 1, 2009 at 6:06 AM

For a slow morning Jason Tolbert has coverage (link corrected) and other links to: State Rep. Dawn Creekmore (DINO, newly arrived in Bauxite with her carpetbag in hand) announcing for state Senate. Republican Rep. Dan Greenberg is already in. Coach Dwight Fite might get in, but will shuck his former Democratic costume for Republican or independent status if he does. Lurking also is former state Rep. Jeremy Hutchinson. And perhaps many more.

UPDATE: Democrats will have a choice in this race. Todd Witham, a Benton native and former Marine who now lives in western Little Rock, also has announced his candidacy to succeed Democratic Sen. Shane Broadway in the seat. His opening announcement isn't revealing, but he'd have to be terrible to be worse than Creekmore.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
