Prosecutor Ellington plans 1st District race

PLANS TO FILE FOR CONGRESS: Scott Ellington
  • 'PLANS' TO FILE FOR CONGRESS: Scott Ellington
This just in from Mariah Hatta, a political consultant and former director of the Arkansas Democratic Party.

Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington of Jonesboro plans to file Thursday as a Democratic candidate for 1st District Congress. Mariah Hatta plans to be his campaign manager.

That's all Hatta would say for the moment in a telephone call from Washington. Please place emphasis on her use of the word "plans."

Filing ends at noon tomorrow. If all goes according to plan, Hatta said the potential candidate would have more to say about primary strategy. State Rep. Clark Hall and Arkansas State economics professor Gary Latanich have already filed to oppose incumbent Republican Rep. Rick Crawford. Plans are sometimes not realized. See Jay Martin's announcement earlier.

Ellington has been in the news in recent months for his role approving a plea bargain with the West Memphis Three.
