The final hours of filing

Posted By on Mon, Mar 8, 2010 at 9:03 AM

There will be a small rush today as filing closes for the primary election season. Sounds like the elite eight of Republicans will assemble for U.S. Senate. Still more names are being added to the Republican primary for 3rd District Congress, good news for Fort Smith's Gunner DeLay, I'd guess, who stands alone as a candidate from the other side of the mountain.

Gilbert Baker, Republican for Senate, tore into Dr. No Boozman, another GOP Senate candidate, for his TARP vote. Republican blogger Jason Tolbert expresses surprise that Baker is going after Boozman instead of Blanche Lincoln. I'd say it's about time the Republicans started running against each other. There's no November match with Lincoln (or Halter) for the losers.
