Reynolds Wins College Republicans Senate Straw Poll


Col. Conrad Reynolds has won the Arkansas College Republicans Straw Poll for U.S. Senate which was held yesterday. I don't have any other details at this time, but obviously it is good news for him and bad news for Sen. Gilbert Baker and Curtis Coleman, the two men in the race with the most money and high-profile backing.

The top investigative journalist in the state is not a paid reporter for the state-controlled newspapers, its Jason Tolbert (except on education issues where our own Debbie Pelley reigns supreme). The Tolbert Report has in-depth coverage of the College Republican Event.

The real story is that only 14 people traveled to this state-level meeting.

Ha ha! Gilbert Baker's stand-in: "Gilbert's out of state raising money for his campaign."

That'll impress the voters!

Baker is the only one with the standing to raise national attention and, yes, money from around the nation.

He is trying to unseat a U.S. Senator....a formidable task. Do you honestly think Blanche will only raise money in Arkansas?

Oh no, but then I'm not interested in finding a 'replacement' who merely mimics Blanche.

"Money from around the nation" = special interests who expect a return on their investment.
