  • COULD WE GET A LOOK AT THAT BALLOT? French HIll keeping it secret on minimum wage study.
… would somebody ask the 2nd District Republican candidate  French Hill how he voted on the state minimum wage increase when he early voted last week.

You'll remember that Hill has made it clear he opposes the very concept of minimum wages, but had fudged his position on the state measure, saying he needed time for study.

Wonder what vote that study produced?

Want to make a small bet on whose side the millionaire banker wound up?

The ballot measure would increase the wage from $6.25 to $8.50 an hour by 2017. Polls show it enjoys overwhelming popularity in Arkansas. Even minimum wage foe Asa Hutchinson was forced to cave to the popular dynamics and say he'd vote for it.
