Banker French Hill never did return my call yesterday about mounting talk in Republican circles that he'll make a run for Second District Congress. He spoke to a Republican group today. The tireless Jason Tolbert was on hand and reports Hill talked economy, not politics ("no comment at this time" to a direct question about Congress), but thanked the Arkansas Blog and Tolbert for helping attendance with reports on the political rumors.
CONFIDENTIAL TO MH: If French does run, you're going to have to forego arugula for a while. They don't know from arugula in Saline County, unless it's the cough drop.
