Huck settles a score

Posted By on Tue, Jan 26, 2010 at 3:59 PM

I can't do much here on legislative races. Too many and too much going on elsewhere. But I should note former Gov. Mike Huckabee's endorsement of John Parke for the WLR House seat, District 31, being vacated by Dan Greenberg to make a Senate run. Take that David Sanders. Sanders is also seeking the Republican nomination  in District 31. He once worked for Huckabee. He's also written critically about Huckabee from time to time as a columnist for Stephens Media.

You can add 2 plus 2 can't you? It equals FU.

Sanders strikes back. Has endorsements from two relevant JPs in Saline and Pulaski (Barbara Howell and Doug Reed) and Saline County Judge Lanny Fite. With all due respect to the Huckster, I think Sanders has the better of the endorsements for a 2010 race for state House.

Tolbert notes that Parke was pro-choice as a Heights legislative candidate and before moving to WLR.

PS -- Parke's son worked as an intern in Huckabee's presidential campaign, so there was a personal relationship to consider.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
