The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette picks up on the hot race between Republican Terry Rice and newly minted Democrat Bill Walters (he previously served in the Arkansas Senate as a Republican) in House District 62, which covers Scott County over to the west. Reporter Mike Wickline offers a compare-n-contrast on the two candidates.
I’m not sure if I’ve ever actually been to Scott County, because it seems like a terrifying “end of civilization” frontier place where crazy and sordid things are always happening, according to a close friend of mine who hails from Waldron. Like, they pull a human torso out of a catfish pond and nobody blinks an eye. Apparently that’s just like any normal Thursday in Scott County, I guess.
