The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza lists the “Top 10 Senate Races” of the 2010 cycle, and little old Arkansas is nowhere to be found. It is generally agreed that Sen. Blanche Lincoln may be more vulnerable than was Mark Pryor in 2008 (see poli sci prof Jay Barth’s thoughts on that matter over at Roby Brock’s blog). But thus far no GOP candidate has emerged to challenge the lady from Helena.
Last week, Arkansas Project readers urged former Gov. Mike Huckabee to challenge Lincoln. That would certainly catapult the 2010 race into most handicappers’ “Top 10” lists.
Thanks to frequent Arkansas Project flier Br549 for the tip.
