The GOP Southern strategy

The GOP's 60s-era-conceived Southern strategy isn't over yet. From today's New York Times:

JONESBORO, Ark. — The Southern white Democrat, long on the endangered list, is at risk of being pushed one step closer to extinction.

From Virginia to Florida and South Carolina to Texas, nearly two dozen Democratic seats are susceptible to a potential Republican surge in Congressional races on Election Day, leaving the party facing a situation where its only safe presence in the South is in urban and predominantly black districts.

Arkansas seats long held by Democrats — in the 1st and 2nd congressional districts — are among those listed as Republican opportunities. Bill Clinton's trip to Arkansas for Chad Causey in the 1st and Joyce Elliott in the 2nd is mentioned.
