Congressional notes

Posted By on Wed, Feb 17, 2010 at 2:32 PM

Tim Griffin, a Republican running for 2nd District Congress, announces his endorsement by Jay Dickey, the Republican booted from 4th District Congress by Rep. Mike Ross. Go figure. Of course, Griffin has stronger roots in the 4th District than the 2nd. ... As expected, Democratic State Rep. David Cook of Williford announced today for 1st District.

PS -- Having Dickey endorse you is almost as bad as having an unqualified narcissist from Alaska endorse you for 2nd District. Wait, that happened last night for Griffin, too. Jason Tolbert muses on Caribou Barbie's singling out of Griffin. (His opponent, Scott Wallace, has scored an endorsement outside the district, too, but from the undefeated godfather of Arkansas Republicanism, former U.S. Rep. John Paul Hammerschmidt.)

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
