Some movement at the lower reaches of Republican political candidacies.
KFSM//KXNW reports t
hat Rep. Debra Hobbs
will drop out of the GOP primary race today for governor and run instead for lieutenant governor.
Additionally, the station says Rep. Charlie Collins
will drop out of the lt. gov. race because of U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin's
expected entry tomorrow. And, the TV station says, it expects another Republican in the lt. gov. race, Craig Miller
of Newton County. Never have so many cared so much about so little. Rep. Andy Mayberry
is still in the GOP race to pick a nominee to oppose Democrat John Burkhalter.
If you're counting, developments would leave the Republican gubernatorial primary race to oppose Democrat Mike Ross
between Curtis Coleman
and Asa Hutchinson.
Had to smile at KATV's report last night. Coleman was quoted about how GOP ads attacking Ross were a sign of weakness of their presumed front-runner Hutchinson.
