Prissy Hickerson Eyeing District 1 House Seat (Updated!)

Word comes in that Republican Prissy Hickerson of Texarkana, who chaired the Arkansas Highway Commission under Gov. Mike Huckabee, is considering a run for the state House of Representatives in District 1, the seat currently held by term-limited House Majority Leader and blogger extraordinaire Steve Harrelson. (Harrelson’s running for state Senate.)

Hickerson says she’s been talking to people about a potential run and may form an exploratory committee in the coming weeks.

UPDATE: To clarify on the above, this post does not reflect my typical “rumor-mongering” approach to these matters: In this case, I placed an ACTUAL PHONE CALL to Hickerson and she confirmed to me that she is looking hard at a run for the District 1 seat. There seemed to be some suggestion that I was just speculating on that (cough*Roby Brock!*cough!).

Since I am the laziest blogger in the entire state of Arkansas, I wanted to be sure that I get maximum credit for the minimum effort I expended in pursuit of this nugget. I know, I know, nobody was more shocked than I….

    I’ve known her for many years and she would be a crackerjack candidate.

    Hey! It’s getting to be the time to play “Who’s Going to Run for What in 2010”. An outstanding rumor-mongering
    fest that can be enjoyed by all.

    Let’s start it out: Is Tim Summers going to get a primary opponent since, during the session, he voted like the Democrat he used to be.

    Is Greenberg giving up his seat to run for higher office? If so, will he have a credible primary opponent?

    Let’s hear some others!!!

    Well, Prissy is crackerjack; on that we can agree.

    Now, about the meaning of crackerjack….

    Prissy would be a great candidate! I hope she decides to run. She’s one of our best assets in the 4th district. We need to get 3 or 4 house seats in the 4th this cycle. Anybody hear anything about a challenger for Mike Ross?
