Crank factor emerges in 4th District congressional race

DEMOCRATIC SPOILER: D.C. Morrison is back.
  • DEMOCRATIC SPOILER: D.C. Morrison is back.
Jason Tolbert reports that D.C. Morrison, the crackpot who was injected into the 2010 Democratic U.S. Senate primary to further damage Democratic efforts to hold the seat, now is traipsing down to the 4th District from his Little Rock home to enter the Democratic congressional primary there.

The idea is probably, like 2010, to help the eventual Republican candidate by damaging Democratic candidates. So far, only Sen. Gene Jeffress has announced as a Democrat, but further developments are expected. However, the crossover Republicans who helped put Morrison in double figures in the 2010 primary won't have a free shot in 2012. They'll have to forsake a vote in the contested Republican congressional primary.

PS — Morrison told AP he plans to move to the 4th District. But district residency isn't required for congressional candidates.
