    Gilbert Baker is making the rounds by phone drumming up support and money for some announcement or other he is planning to make early next week. He is calling friends and political contacts across the state which is NOT a play out of the Trevor Drown Playbook because one actually has to have friends and political contacts statewide before one can put it into a playbook that these folks need to be contacted. So, TAP, you can announce it here that the big news of the day is that Gilbert Baker is making a dramatic shift away from operating according to the Trevor Drown Playbook and may have sealed his own defeat or victory 5 days before actually announcing his intention to challenge for Blank’s position.

    I’m sorry, but the fact that you had to ask that question leads me to believe you may not be ready to be an Arkansas Project reader yet. Please come back in a year and we’ll try again.
