TYLER DENTON: JP mentioned for House race.
  • TYLER DENTON: JP mentioned for House race.
A polling firm has been testing Democratic 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.
