HE SAID WHAT? GOP candidate French Hill said he didn't think government should get into the wage-setting business. And he said a minimum wage is no answer to poverty. No, but it might be an answer to hunger.

David Ramsey did a great job of gavel-to-gavel coverage of the two big AETN debates today. For those with short attention spans, a couple of quick takes from me on the outcomes:

U.S. Senate: Mark Pryor won aided by low expectations and a robotic opponent with needle stuck on Obama.

2nd District Congress: Good ol' Pat Hays won thanks to his bipartisan pitch and tone-deaf millionaire banker French Hill's gobsmacker: “If a family is truly in poverty, the minimum wage is not any answer." 

Cotton and Hill camps say they won. The number of undecided voters who saw these debates and their assessments are the most interesting questions of the day.
