Tim Griffin to announce for lieutenant governor Thursday

  • RUNNING: Tim Griffin for No. 2.
A caller says Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin said on a radio show this morning that he'd announce Thursday his decision on entering the Republican primary for lieutenant governor — a race he previously told Democrat-Gazette reporters multiple times he had no intention of making.

No need to hold your breath. He's in. Multiple people who've spoken with Griffin over the weekend say he has firmly declared his intentions to run.

Minor interest now arises in whether this decision affects the two other annnounced Republican candidates — Reps. Charlie Collins and Andy Mayberry. I'm assured that Democrat John Burkhalter's candidacy isn't deterred by Griffin's entry.

    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.

From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
