Spotlight on Gov. Asa Hutchinson

Posted By on Mon, Mar 30, 2015 at 1:40 PM

The April issue of Governing magazine has a long profile on Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson. They re-cast Hutchinson the Hedger as a patient strategist. Fair enough. Certainly hard to argue with Hutchinson's political success at seeing his big-ticket items through. Of course, it's the petty, hateful items that will be getting some national attention now. 

Anyways, Governing quotes super-lobbyist  Bruce Hawkins: “I haven’t seen many political appointments or good ol’ boy appointments." 

Ahem. I thought he might be joking but maybe Hutchinson will pay him back for the compliment and give a job to some relative of Hawkins.
