The odd couple



Gov. Mike Huckabee finally takes some time to campaign for a Republican ... in Arkansas.

Huckabee today joins Asa Hutchinson on a bus tour of South Arkansas. They began in Pine Bluff this morning, and they will make stops in Fordyce, El Dorado, Magnolia, and Hope before finishing with a rally in Texarkana.

Tomorrow they will get back on the bus and make their way toward Little Rock to attend a "Push to the Polls" evening celebration at Juanita's restaurant, where Huckabee's band, Capitol Offense, will play.

Plenty of opportunities to ask about all of the issues on which the two men disagree.

P.S. -- Even better, someone could ask Huckabee about this, from today's edition of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (

Ron Fuller, a former Republican lawmaker who’s supporting Beebe, said the ads indicated “absolute desperation” on Hutchinson’s part and called them “disgraceful.”

“It’s using very innocent children to carry a message,” said Fuller, a former campaign finance chairman for Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee. “I don’t think that’s anything the governor would have ever have approved or accepted.”

Fuller emphasized that he called on his own to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette to complain about the ad, not at the direction of Huckabee or Beebe. Huckabee has endorsed Hutchinson. His office didn’t return an e-mail message Monday.
