Student-Driven PAC Aims to Blunt G.O.P., promote Democrats in South

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. The last Democratic stronghold in the South is in the care of a new set of guardians: graduate students, mostly.

At a party last month, a group in their 20s, many of them enrolled in the Clinton School of Public Service at the University of Arkansas, unveiled a new state and federal PAC. Called Naturally Blue, its aim is to maintain the tenuous majority of Democrats in the Arkansas legislature to promote an agenda of economic populism and to take the fight to the rest of Dixie.
