Busy Wednesday open line

*HOLD OFF ON THAT AWARD
: If you didn't see it earlier, Rep. Justin Harris won't be getting a "Power of Courage" award from the Family Council today after all. We received word late in the day that the group has decided to honor Harris and Rep. Charlene Fite at a later date, rather at today's Ted Cruz event in Van Buren as originally planned. Family Council President Jerry Cox said the Crawford County Republican Party (the hosts of the event) had asked them to not present the awards tonight, but I can't help but wonder if the Cruz campaign had a hand in the decision as well.
