1st District politics

Evidence grew in the last week that Democrats hope to retake the District 1 congressional seat held by freshman Republican Rep. Rick Crawford of Jonesboro.

Three names were linked to the race, all from Jonesboro.

Steve Rockwell, member of a Corning-based publishing family, told a crowd at the Corning Fourth of July picnic that he was considering the race. Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington told the Blue Arkansas blog he was giving some thought to the race. Finally, Chad Causey, the former aide to retired Rep. Marion Berry who lost to Crawford in 2010, said he's thinking about another race.

Thinking and doing are, of course, two different things.
