National Republicans have friend in Arkansas

Posted By on Tue, May 23, 2017 at 7:29 AM

Pro Publica provides a handy searchable database of Republican National Committee contributions in April and an Arkansas donor was near the top of the heap of givers.

The Warren A. Stephens Trust (he's the CEO of Stephens Inc., the financial powerhouse) gave three contributions of $101,700  each — to the legal proceedings account, the convention account and the headquarters account.  All on April 26.

A handful of other small contributions from Arkansas, totaling about $6,000, also were reported. In all, the RNC raised about $10 million.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
