Tim Griffin, a Republican running for 2nd District Congress, announces his endorsement by Jay Dickey, the Republican booted from 4th District Congress by Rep. Mike Ross. Go figure. Of course, Griffin has stronger roots in the 4th District than the 2nd. ... As expected, Democratic State Rep. David Cook of Williford announced today for 1st District.
PS -- Having Dickey endorse you is almost as bad as having an unqualified narcissist from Alaska endorse you for 2nd District. Wait, that happened last night for Griffin, too. Jason Tolbert muses on Caribou Barbie's singling out of Griffin. (His opponent, Scott Wallace, has scored an endorsement outside the district, too, but from the undefeated godfather of Arkansas Republicanism, former U.S. Rep. John Paul Hammerschmidt.)
