Another Democrat into the fray in Benton County

Posted By on Tue, Feb 11, 2014 at 10:14 AM

No surrender yet. Word comes from the Democratic Party today of another legislative candidate in Benton County.

He's Grimsley Graham of Rogers, a veteran and a teacher at Rogers High School for 30 years. Said his release:

Like many Arkansans, I am disturbed by the polarization and vitriol that have characterized the political process. I am running because I know that common sense and working together across the aisle will move Arkansas forward and I pledge to do just that.

The seat is currently held by Tea Party extremist Republican Debra Hobbs,who's running for governor. There are plenty more where she came from, of course.
