The Democratic Party promises a show of Democrat and Republican "leaders" Monday to support the tobacco tax for health programs.

Which Republicans? Not saying. Not Sen. Gilbert Baker, I'd bet.

UPDATE: Jason Tolbert, a Republican blogger, figures the tax-and-spenders are Rep. Rick Green and Sen. Cecile Bledsoe.

News release:

HEALTH AND TOBACCO NOT A PARTISAN ISSUE

 DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS UNITE IN THE FACE OF BIG TOBACCO

At a bipartisan announcement Monday, a call will be made to put Arkansas's health care needs above partisanship despite efforts by the national tobacco lobby to divide Arkansas's elected leaders.
