Democratic challenger for Tea Party's Hubbard

Posted By on Mon, Oct 3, 2011 at 1:28 PM

There may be others to come on the Democratic side, but a solid challenger has announced in Jonesboro to oppose Tea Party Republican Rep. Jon Hubbard, one of the most extreme members (for example) of a generally extremist GOP delegation, for re-election next year. He's Harold Copenhaver, a farmer, insurance man, trio-singing member of First Baptist Church, son of a long-time ASU dean, Rotarian and otherwise solid citizen. His news release says:

I have the time and energy to be a common sense voice for Jonesboro in the state legislature. I will be a positive representative who will place what’s best for our community over partisan bickering. We can’t afford to be represented by a constant NO Vote in Little Rock. I will be a public servant who doesn’t focus on party lines and will vote for what is best for Jonesboro.

Common sense? Will that play in 2012?

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
