  • 2014: Mike Ross and Asa Hutchinson will likely decide partisan control in Arkansas.
Politico looks at the 2014 governor's race in Arkansas. It's pitched as a question of whether Democrats can still win in the South.

Answer: Maybe, maybe not.

Republicans are madly rebroadcasting the story because of this quote from U.S. Sen. Dale Bumpers:

“It’s not like it used to be,” former Democratic Sen. Dale Bumpers said of Arkansas. “Republicans control politics in the state.”

None of the Repubs have yet re-Tweeted this Bumpers quote in the same article:

“I think his chances are excellent,” Bumpers said of Ross. “I would almost be willing to bet that he will win the governor’s race.”
