Beebe's cash machine

Posted By on Tue, Jun 15, 2010 at 5:11 PM

Gov. Mike Beebe raised more than $550,000 in May, for a total of more than $2.8 million and he has $2.3 million on hand for fall, counting unused primary money. Republican Jim Keet finished May with about $14,000 on hand in his general election account. A month ago, his primary account showed about $31,000 on hand. But he did draw a reported 250 people to a $250-per-person reception Tuesday night (A $1,0000 special meet-and-greet was also on offer.)

May included the fund-raiser thrown in Dallas for Beebe by Dallas Cowboy owner Jerry Jones. The Jones family chipped in handsomely, reports show, along with former Republican gubernatorial nominee Sheffield Nelson. The Walmart CEO appears on Beebe's report. I'm having trouble with my PDF links tonight, but this link will take you to a lookup page for all Beebe's reports on the secretary of state website.

    Well, the trade war has begun and the early returns for farmers are not good — sharp reductions in the prices for soybeans and corn. You may have heard that Arkansas, which overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump, has some agricultural interests, particularly in soybeans.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
