Halter or the Hanging Judge for Matchup with Holt?
There has been lot's of buzz lately, Brummett's column today alluded to it, and the Arktimes blog is all over it, about which Democrat has the best chance against Senator Jim Holt for Lt. Governor. The majority opinion in those quarters is fear that Holt has a good chance to beat Halter and that State Senator Tim Wooldridge AKA "The Hanging Judge" for his bill to bring back public hangings, matches up better against Holt.
That may be or it may not be. If it goes down that way, with Wooldridge the nominee, I know I am going to have fun. I am going to have fun watching the liberal media try to paint Wooldridge as the "moderate" in this race and Holt as the "Extremist". Wooldridge also sponsored a bill that many feel would have allowed Deltic Timber to pollute Little Rock's water supply. For every eltist Republican who can't bring themselves to vote for Holt, there are two environmentally conscious central Arkansas liberals who won't vote Wooldrige. If the Green Party gets on the ballot then instead of just leaving that ballot spot blank, the liberals really have a place to send a message.
Hang in there Senator Wooldridge! This could be fun.
