Blogger Jason Tolbert tweets that Gov. Mike Beebe is beginning to spread his political capital around as evidenced by holding a fund-raiser for Rep. Dawn Creekmore. She's running against Republican Jeremy Hutchinson for state Senate. The results will be indistinguishable.
UPDATE: Beebe is listed as guest of honor of the event tomorrow night at a Chenal Valley home, not as host. OOPS. Beebe will not be attending — schedule conflict his staff says. Shame on Dawn for exaggerating.
UPDATE II: Creekmore says she didn't exaggerate. The invitation only lists Beebe as an invited guest. It was prepared some time ago. She said the governor had said he'd attend if his schedule permitted. It didn't.
