Hmm...sounds like Blanche Lincoln may announce her retirement tomorrow
Edited on Mon Jan-25-10 07:59 PM by WI_DEM
big political announcement coming out of Arkansas tomorrow.

Hopefully this will open things up for the Lt.Gov to run.

P.S.
Kos on KO is saying the Lt.Gov may challenge her in the dem primary anyway. Good!!

1. Are there any ACTUAL Democrats left in Arkansas?
No point in losing one WalMart tool just to get another.

6. Listening to KO--now there is speculation that it's a fund raising announcment
but still I'm not convinced.

8. No, she's just going to announce fundraising totals.
Must have had an impressive haul.

9. She's always depended on the kindness of strangers
Maybe a nice gentleman caller with a white coat will take her away.

10. I posted this earlier in the Arkansas forum
Not that it really means anything.

But ... I did pick up some political gossip over by the frozen salmon.

A well-known Washington insider has been telling Arkies this weekend that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is trying to talk Sen. Blanche Lincoln out of running for re-election.

That would open the door for a Wes Clark candidacy. And U.S. Rep. Mike Ross would be in the race in a heartbeat. Then comes a deluge of candidates in the 4th District. Forget for a moment what a Boozman candidacy does for the House of Dominoes on the Republican side from Senate down.

13. Ross will get destroyed
His sweetheart deals with big pharma would be a MAJOR point in the ads run against him. His defense has been, "So what? I deserve that money."

Yea! He will be an awesome Senator from Arkansas. Tell him to ditch his Congressional aspirations ASAP.

15. Clark could probably win
But I thought he was waiting for his 10 year anniversary of retirement from the military, so he could be Secretary of Defense. It was speculated that was the reason why Obama left Chimpy's guy in, rather than replacing him with a short timer.
