More 2014 talk, this time the state Senate

Posted By on Mon, Jan 7, 2013 at 2:12 PM

Let's talk 2014 a little more.

I heard that state Rep. Ann Clemmer of Bryant was making plans to run for first-term Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson's seat in 2014. I asked. Her response:

That is my plan. Jeremy had told me in 2011 that he was looking at AG if he drew a two[-year term].

Limited Internet. Brother from Baton Rouge area took my mom on cruise for her 80th birthday. Service only while in port.

Bon voyage, Rep. Clemmer.

This could be a most interesting GOP primary race in a district trending strongly Republican. 'Gator Bait' Hutchinson is, at the moment, presumably a bit bruised for statewide office after his dustup with his mistress and his confession that payments were made to her from his campaign fund. But Hutchinson knows how to turn on the confessional sorrow that is a revival staple among his base. I wouldn't count him out.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
