Debra Hobbs to enter Republican race for governor

I posted a note the other day that indicated state Rep. Debra Hobbs of Rogers was giving prayerful consideration to a run for governor.

She apparently got the answer. She's in, AP reports. Formal announcement next month. She's another hard-core conservative to go with Curtis Coleman in the primary against Asa Hutchinson, the presumed frontrunner, who manages to look moderate by comparison.

She's term limited, so what the hey?

And, hey. Wonder if this helps Davy Carter get in the race? In a three-way battle for the extremist Republican vote (if that's not repetitious), might there be a possibility of a surprise?

PS — News accounts quote Hobbs as saying God wanted her to enter the race. How come the reporters missed the obvious followup question: Did He tell her she was going to win?
