A race in the Third?

Posted By on Tue, Sep 22, 2009 at 1:41 PM

Reading between the lines of The Iconoclast (dangerous business, I know), I read the linked item to indicate that David Whitaker, an Air Force veteran, Democrat and recently resigned assistant city attorney in Fayetteville, will soon announce a challenge to Republican U.S. Rep. John Boozman.

A Democrat faces a steep hill in this district, I know, even against a weak congressman. But is an automatic vote for the minority, obstructionist position all it takes to be re-elected in the Third? Benton County, yes. But the whole district?

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    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.
