Gunner DeLay Announces for 3rd District

And I don't think we are through yet. This primary is going to be an excellent example of why we need instant run-off voting for all races.

DeLay has connections in Sebastian county and some name ID. In a divided field, it may be enough to get him in a run-off.

Didn't Gunner get in the run off last time?

He did, and the field is even more divided this time.

How well did he do last time. You think that support will be there again this time?

As I recall, it was him & Boozman in the run-off. I don't remember the final numbers betwixt' those two, but my guess is he could pull off a primary win this time. He's tall, handsome, articulate and has a pretty family - perhaps enough to win not only the primary, but also the general. Arkansas could do, and has done, worse.

I think with such a crowded field that Gunner might just have a real shot at it this time. The only reason Boozman got in the run off last time was because of Hendern's collapse and the Hutchinson brother switching to Boozman.

Don't forget Fay and the sympathy/confusion vote.

It's incomprehensible to me that Arkansans would vote another lawyer into D.C. If we do, then we deserve what we get when our country flops.

Re: Voting another lawyer into D.C., I would say just the opposite is true; we just need more conservative lawyers.
4:31 a.m. Anonymous, what do you think we need more of? Bimbos like Nancy Pelosi? She isn't a lawyer (one bio I found on her says she "thought about law school") and she's screwed things up more than any lawyer could have.
While Harry Reid is a lawyer, his problem is one of intellectual vacuity.
The test of who does well in D.C. isn't whether he/she is a lawyer - the test is whether they have a spine and vote to reduce spending, rein in fraud and waste, and shrink government.

No lawyers has you jumping to Pelosi? The logic escapes me. What we need in DC is people who are not connected to special interests. We, the citizens, have no representation right now. We better change that and only we have the power to do it. Keep electing the same and we will get more of the same. Pretty soon, we have no country left. I want a Representative who represents me, us, and their financial reports on tell me who that is.

Here's the logic: your argument is more lawyers in Congress will cause our country to flop; my counter-argument is we need fewer non-lawyers like Pelosi - and more conservative lawyers who understand the limitations placed on the federal government by the Constitution - a concept escaping most of Congress right now.
