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.
