TYLER DENTON: JP mentioned for House race.
A polling firm has been testing
names for a state House race in the Heights area, the seat held by term-limited state Rep. John Edwards.
The names: Justice of the Peace Tyler Denton,
City Director Stacy Hurst
and lawyer Clarke Tucker.
My guess would put
Denton as the likeliest entrant of the three.
Jodie Mahony (
son of the late former El Dorado legislator) has already announced for the seat as a Democrat. French Hill
had announced a Republican candidacy before turning his eyes to Congress when U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin said he would not seek re-election.
CORRECTION: I'm told, though not by her, that Stacy Hurst has said if she runs it will be as a Republican.
