Republican poultry lobbyist considering run for attorney general

Posted By on Tue, May 28, 2013 at 4:33 PM

Talk Business reports that Arkansas Poultry Federation lobbyist Marvin Childers, a former Republican legislator from Blytheville, is considering a race for attorney general. The only announced candidate so far is a little-known Religious Right Republican from North Little Rock, David Sterling. Also, Leslie Rutledge of Batesville, a Republican National Committee lawyer in recent years, is also thinking about a race.

A win would have to mean a pay cut for the chicken lobbyist, you'd think, which would put you to thinking in longer political terms. He got a little notice for the revolving door syndrome back in the day. He toyed with the idea of an a.g.'s race once before. Maybe he really just wants to devote time to legal public service.

A good way for Childers to make a name in this race would be to assume a favorite old role of the office — protecting the environment, say against the likes of chicken and pig crap rolling into scenic rivers of Arkansas.
