A brand new crop of grassroots conservative candidates have just been elected to nearly every level of government in Arkansas—and they have a promise to keep.
In 2008, every ballot issue passed with a decisive majority. Last night, we witnessed the very same story. This trend begs a question: Is it possible that Arkansans are so hungry for change, they’ll vote for any ballot issue in hopes that actual positive change will occur? It’s a question worth asking.
Everyone—including ourselves—is talking about the sweeping gains Republicans made last night. It’s undeniable that Republicans had some big wins in Congress and across Arkansas yesterday. However, I can’t help but wonder if they might have won bigger had they put forth some extra effort.
