You perhaps remember the Stone County sheriff's race, which ended in a tie. Gov. Mike Beebe has set a special primary next week to try to get a Democratic nominee. Sheriff Todd Hudspeth is to face Lance Bonds.
Russ Aiken, the Republican nominee, would prefer the Democratic Party be deprived of a nominee. He's filed suit to stop the election. He thinks he's found a legal technicality.
Judge Jay Moody drew the case against Gov. Beebe and the Stone County Election Commission.
