Who'd you choose as an endorser?

WE LIKE MIKE: At least more than Club for Growth.
  • WE LIKE MIKE: At least more than Club for Growth.
The Club for Growth, the anti-tax outfit heavily financed by Stephens empire heir Jackson T. Stephens Jr., has endorsed Republican Tom Cotton in the race for 4th District Congress. Mike Huckabee, long a focus of Club for Growth ire for insufficient fealty to its causes, is backing his former staff member, Beth Anne Rankin.

So the question: If endorsements matter, which one should you follow?

It is an easy choice, if not easy to say — Huckabee. For an occasional dose of political pragmatism, for an occasional dose of populism.

Club for Growth has no creed but greed.

  • 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.
