No D. C. Morrison this time. You must choose in the Democratic primary between Sen. Blanche Lincoln or Bill Halter. Brummett writes on that race that Lincoln lost her chance to be John McClellan and call down a dangerous opponent (David Pryor in his case) in a televised debate about his union ties. This presumes that a televised debate would get the same attention such events got in the days before cable, video games and abiding cynicism about the political process.
