Pulaski speaks

Posted By on Tue, May 18, 2010 at 9:35 PM

Votes are finally being put up by the Pulaski County Election Commission. It's early, but John Boozman's haul of nearly 50 percent of votes counted don't bode well forhis challengers in the U.S. Senate primary for Republicans.

Robbie Wills is running second in the Democratic primary for 2nd District in Pulaski and Joyce Elliott has not carried 50 percent of the Pulaski vote at this point, a good outcome for Wills.

It's not official by any means, but it looks like Jay Barth will lose that Little Rock Senate race to Linda Chesterfield. Racially polarized voting remains a fact of life here. Sexual politics also work well in the conservative black churches that Chesterfield worked.

In Pulaski, Jeremy Hutchinson is clobbering Rep. Dan Greenberg for an open state Senate seat, but Saline County votes will decide that race.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
