GOP Convention Speaker's List Heavy on Arkansas Ties

Now I see an even longer list of speakers has appeared, with Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton on it as well. It looks like the Arkansas Republican Establishment has bought into "Making America Great Again"

The Republican Party has released a list of speakers for their convention in Cleveland. While many prominent Republicans have refused to attend the convention, three of the 67 speakers have Arkansas ties. Former Governor (and current Florida resident) Mike Huckabee, current Governor Asa Hutchinson, and current Attorney General Leslie Rutledge are on the speaker's list. Hutchinson has been quoted as saying he will be given a "prime time" spot. That despite is strong endorsement of Marco Rubio during the campaign.

Here is the whole list.....
