Janis Percefull, the Hot Springs college teacher who's announced as a Democratic candidate for 4th District Congress, sent me a statement about the entry into the race yesterday of Democrat James Lee Witt, the former FEMA director.

In regards to the newest entry into the race for U. S. Congress from the 4th Congressional District—it was expected. And yes he is rich and powerful and has many rich and powerful backers, but no I am not intimidated by his presence in the race. Nor was I intimidated by Tom Cotton and his rich and powerful backers. Nor will I be intimidated by anyone else, or their rich and powerful backers. Why that is exactly I don’t know—I’m just not. I think it helps to know that the voices of the many are standing with me even if the voices of the privileged few are not. I entered this race with a calm resolve to act, and that is what I will continue to do.

OK then.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
