Yes, Conner Eldridge is considering race against Boozman

Conner Eldridge's last day as U.S. attorney for the Western District of Arkansas was Friday and, as expected, he told the Associated Press today that he was considering running (as a Democrat) against incumbent U.S. Sen. John Boozman next year. Decision soon, in that filing is in November.

He'd be a sparkling candidate in a long tradition of young, ambitious, smart lawyers — Bumpers, Pryor, Tucker, Clinton, Snyder. Particularly if Arkansas was still a state that voted reflexively Democratic. Of course, if that were the case, more than one Democrat would be mentioned as a potential Senate candidate.
