Latest on congressional races

Posted By on Mon, Oct 18, 2010 at 6:44 AM

The Talk Business/Hendrix College polling effort is releasing its last batch of pre-election numbers. Today it's the soundings in congressional races. The 1st District is in play, with Republican Rick Crawford ahead 42-34 over Democrat Chad Causey and 20 percent undecided; Rep. Mike Ross appears safe in the 4th District, leading Beth Anne Rankin 52-34; Republicans have leads in the open 2nd and 3rd — Tim Griffin 50-38, over Joyce Elliott; Steve Womack 59-21 over David Whitaker.

Speaking of Congress: The New York Times reports further on how stealth Republican-funded groups are using the Republican Supreme Court majority's ruling on corporate cash to push the limits on advocacy advertising. One group mentioned, the American Future Fund, is active against Chad Causey in the First District.

Also: John Brummett thinks, too, it's more than a little kooky that Tim Griffin took after a bunch of grannies having a potluck dinner and talking about the need to reduce military spending as if they were a sinister commie cell. We mentioned this earlier.

  • 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.
