Calhoun Speaks to Central Arkansas GOP

Rick Calhoun: Planning a run?
Rick Calhoun: Planning a run?

Since we’ve recently been tracking the movements of various rumored political candidates, I should note that Little Rock investment banker Rick Calhoun is slated to speak to the Central Arkansas Republican Club on Friday at 11:30 a.m. at the Little Rock Club downtown.

Calhoun’s name has been floated as a potential GOP challenger to Sen. Blanche Lincoln in 2010, and it’s noted that he’s recently been boosting his profile with a variety of party building activities. And at one time he played guitar for a rock and roll outfit called the St. James Group, though that has nothing at all to do with this. He’s also in Mike Huckabee’s band Capitol Offense, but the less said about that the better.

What’s he up to? Check in at the Little Rock Club Friday to find out. Call Bonnie Davis at 501-835-6004 for reservations, if it’s not too late.

And don’t forget that Blake Rutherford of Blake’s Think Tank and I will be talking new media and politics to the Arkansas chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators at the same time and in the same place Friday, strangely enough, so choose your poison.

    Calhoun better grow a personality and the ability to relate to the “common man” before he runs for anything.

    And any of you Communications Director types who are thinking of tying on with his nascent campaign might just want to talk to his last Communications Director type before you make any committment, like, say, quitting your current job…

    Well, unless your entire world is focused on putting out your own blog. In that case, a 2 week almost-paying gig might be a step up…

    There’s a few possible folks running over here in NEA too. One of the few silver linings is that NEA region politics just got a bit easier.
