Voting starts today

Posted By on Tue, Jun 1, 2010 at 6:11 AM

Early voting begins today for the June 8 runoffs. In Pulaski County, voting begins at 8 a.m. and runs until 5 at the county office building at Markham and Broadways. Hours are 10-5 at eight other locations around the county. Full voting info for Pulaski here.

No D. C. Morrison this time. You must choose in the Democratic primary between Sen. Blanche Lincoln or Bill Halter. Brummett writes on that race that Lincoln lost her chance to be John McClellan and call down a dangerous opponent (David Pryor in his case) in a televised debate about his union ties. This presumes that a televised debate would get the same attention such events got in the days before cable, video games and abiding cynicism about the political process.

UNRELATED NOTE FOR LR RESIDENTS: Get your car out of your yard. Starting today.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
