Poll on GOP attorney general race: Who?????

Posted By on Fri, May 2, 2014 at 5:56 PM

Talk Business/Hendrix poll on Republican primary races starts with the race for attorney general and a finding that 60 percent are undecided. Probably because they've never heard of David Sterling (21 percent for him, probably thanks to huge recemt ad buy from a shadowy right-wing 501c4); Patricia Nation (10 — nation is a familiar word), and Leslie Rutledge (9).

Sounds like a runoff. It makes a deep-pocketed group's spending  — with zero accountability on its finances — a significant factor. If you haven't seen the American Future Fund's ads for David Sterling you should. They are as big a mockery of the notion that such ads are not political advocacy as you could hope to see. Slimy stuff. Just the thing to recommend election of somebody who's supposed to uphold the law. Sterling has already made it clear — as have the other Republicans, frankly — that they have no respect for federal law.

Nate Steel. Remember that name.

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson apparently felt the burn from KARK's exclusive Tuesday night on his plans to cut state support of War Memorial Stadium in half beginning July 1, 2018. He has a so-far secret plan to make the stadium self-sustaining. We bet that doesn't include state support.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
