Linda Tyler's stretch run

Posted By on Thu, Nov 1, 2012 at 10:41 AM

I think I see now why Republican Jason Rapert's Twitter posts have gotten even more shrill of late. Democratic opponent Rep. Linda Tyler has hit TV with some tough ads against Rapert.

Tyler also has a website
detailing Rapert's recorded votes against the state budget bill, with money for education and higher education, when Republicans were mounting a rump drive to upend Gov. Beebe's budget plan. It notes Rapert has claimed to work with Beebe. It also notes his shrill criticism of Obama's economic stimulus program, even though he took some of the stimulus money too convert his pickup to gas power.

Rapert of late has been quoting the Bible extensively, apparently throwing in with the new Huckabee theme that only Republican voters are going to heaven.

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson apparently felt the burn from KARK's exclusive Tuesday night on his plans to cut state support of War Memorial Stadium in half beginning July 1, 2018. He has a so-far secret plan to make the stadium self-sustaining. We bet that doesn't include state support.
