This from Ben Smith a few days ago – SEIU has shown support for Lt. Gov. Bill Halter (although it has not endorsed him for the Senate race) by helping to eliminate his campaign debt from the Lt. Gov.’s race. They also began airing ads against Gilbert Baker, the Republican who won the straw poll a couple of weeks back.
The Seattle Times story above says that he is worried the backlash over Clements will prevent other governors from granting clemency. I share that concern, but I am surprised that the Governor is talking about this at all – it has hurt him so much politically already that people are saying he can’t run in 2012. Yet here he is defending it – when he doesn’t really have to. I like you, Governor Huckabee, but just leave the Clemmons thing alone!
