Democrats add 4th District to congressional wish list

Roll Call notes that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has added Democratic candidate James Lee Witt, seeking the 4th District opening, to its Red to Blue list. He joins former North Little Rock mayor, Patrick Henry Hays, the Democratic candidate for an open 2nd District seat, on the list. It is a sign of optimism about his candidacy and  can mean TV advertising support from the DCCC. The candidates themselves have to make a showing on fund-raising, but Witt has been doing that. (Got the photo in an e-mail solicitation this morning.)

Witt faces Republican Bruce Westerman and Hays faces Republican French HIll, among other candidates.
