French Hill Hits Young Republican Lunch (Updated!)
Little Rock banker French Hill, rumored to be weighing a run for the U.S. Senate in 2010 against Sen. Blanche Lincoln, will speak at the Central Arkansas Young Republicans monthly lunch at noon on Monday, January 26, at Loca Luna in Little Rock. (More on Hill here.)
Last week, Max Brantley at the Arkansas Times suggested that Hill would be visiting the nation’s capital to talk to national Republicans about a potential Senate run. So while you’ve got him there, maybe someone should, y’know, ask him about that, hint hint.
Update, Friday 7:50 a.m.: Not to be outflanked in the 2010 political buzz game, former U.S. Attorney and White House aide Tim Griffin casually mentions on Twitter that many people are trying to give him money to run in ’10. (Hat tip to Lance Turner on the Griffin catch.)
Update to the Update: But would someone please brief Griffin on how to use Twitter? I’m no expert, but I do know that it doesn’t really look good when you sign up and then only follow ONE person. And guess who that one person is. Go ahead, guess:

Interestingly enough, Tim Griffin spoke at the Central Arkansas Young Republican lunch shortly before the story leaked that he might be considering a Senate run. I just sayin’!
Does French Hill have a twitter account yet? I hear that is the way to leak info about a possible Senate run.
Ok Tim Griffin if you are ready this blog….I am about to be blunt with you. DO NOT RUN FOR THE SENATE. You have no chance of winning. If no one close to you will tell you this than I will.
Tim how about running for something small and than work you way up to the senate.
Please run for the U.S. Senate. Pretty please with sugar on top??
And dont listen to David, keep following Rove.
Don’t listen to Br549, Tim! I’m tellin’ ya, it’s a trap!
I think Rush Limbaugh will likely be his second person on Twitter. Rush and Rove are more or less the intellectual leaders of the modern GOP. I congratulate French on his adept grasp of strategy; his only problem is that Blanche is fundamentally a Republican in Democrat clothing.
Tim Griffin’s 3-step campaign plan:
1. Tell a bunch of people that a bunch of other people want Tim Griffin to run for U.S. Senate.
Hey, he added my to his list of Twitter accounts he is following so take that suckers!
