U.S. Sen. Cory Booker
IN TOWN: Sen. Cory Booker
will be on hand when the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign
opens a campaign office at 8 a.m. Saturday in the Tanglewood shopping center on Cantrell Road.
Nice to know the campaign is making some effort in what was her home state for 18 years or so. She ought to improve on Barack Obama's
37 percent performance in 2012 in Arkansas. Shouldn't she?
The Saturday event isn't all in the immediate offing:
There's a fund-raiser Monday at Pavilion in the Park; a debate between Sen. Joyce Elliott and Trump backer Bud Cummins is set for noon Tuesday in the Capitol rotunda as part of a Delta Caucus economic equality event; and a roster of county organizing events are on the schedule. Details here.
