Man, is it ever cold outside….
(How cold is it, Dave?).
Anyway, here’s some political stuff that’s been going down this week that I wanted to note. Maybe you saw some of this scattered around the Arkansas blogosphere the last few days, or maybe you missed it, what the hell do I care what you do with your time:
- Former state Sen. Jim Holt announced that he would indeed enter the GOP primary in the U.S. Senate race to challenge the embattled Lincoln. He even filed paperwork and everything. The Washington Post says it’s one of the top 10 primary races in the country, but they also once ranked The Arkansas Project as a “Top Political Blog,” so who cares what those hacks say.
- GOP state Rep. Mark Martin says he will indeed make a run for secretary of state. Several Democrats have announced for the seat already.
- Republican Mark Darr made his candidacy for lieutenant governor official, and GOP Rep. Roy Ragland said he might just maybe enter the race, too, maybe.
And on Sunday, you’ll want to be sure you’re sitting by your wireless radio at 8 a.m., when I’ll be sitting in as the time filler special guest on Arkansas Sunday Edition with Blake Rutherford of Blake’s Think Tank, on 103.7 The Buzz in Little Rock. I know what you’re thinking: How on earth did Blake land the coveted 7-9 a.m. Sunday morning radio slot? I don’t know, man, he’s just got way more pull than we do.
