Block that cliche: Beebe on the 2014 race for governor

Posted By on Thu, May 9, 2013 at 1:59 PM

DONNYBROOK: Gov. Mike Beebe on 2014 election.
  • 'DONNYBROOK': Gov. Mike Beebe on 2014 election.
Channel 4 has posted an interview with Gov. Mike Beebe on the race to succeed him in 2014: Variously, he said:

* It will be a "donnybrook."

* It will be a "dogfight."

* It will be a good opportunity for candidates to "present who they are."

* "Curve balls" will be thrown.

* "The scripted part is less important than the way a candidate responds to unforeseen circumstances."

* Also, the item said, the campaign "will test candidate's 'metal' by fire."

Sounds like they all better don full mettle jackets.
