Whose side are you on in 4th District GOP primary?

Posted By on Sat, May 19, 2012 at 6:25 AM

The Wall Street Journal today has a feature on the 4th District Republican primary race between Beth Anne Rankin and Tom Cotton (and also, incidentally, John Cowart). The article (pay wall) pitches the race as one between a candidate backed by Mike Huckabee (Rankin, a former employee of the ex-governor) and Cotton, a Club for Growth candidate (nearly $200,000 in funneled Club money last I looked).

Huckabee or Club for Growth, the anti-tax lobby heavily funded by Jackson T. Stephens Jr. of Little Rock? One of those devil-or-the-deep-blue-sea choices.
