For a slow morning Jason Tolbert has coverage (link corrected) and other links to: State Rep. Dawn Creekmore (DINO, newly arrived in Bauxite with her carpetbag in hand) announcing for state Senate. Republican Rep. Dan Greenberg is already in. Coach Dwight Fite might get in, but will shuck his former Democratic costume for Republican or independent status if he does. Lurking also is former state Rep. Jeremy Hutchinson. And perhaps many more.
UPDATE: Democrats will have a choice in this race. Todd Witham, a Benton native and former Marine who now lives in western Little Rock, also has announced his candidacy to succeed Democratic Sen. Shane Broadway in the seat. His opening announcement isn't revealing, but he'd have to be terrible to be worse than Creekmore.
