There's embarrassment in the young gubernatorial campaign of state Rep. Debra Hobbs of Rogers. Announcing her candidacy last week, Representative Hobbs said "I feel like this is what God wants me to do." But sources close to God say that He gave her no encouragement and was at most indifferent to her campaign. "He's not actively opposed, but He's a little miffed that she's dragging Him into her race," said a reliable source who would speak only on condition of anonymity. "Especially since she's running in a Republican primary. He's always kept His distance from those." The Hobbs camp has admitted to faulty research, but as yet there's no indication that failure to win God's support will cause Hobbs to drop out of the race. An observer predicted she'll now seek endorsement from Jason Rapert. "He's the next closest thing."
