Bill Crystal is (or is) a big name in Republican circles. He’s getting a lot of positive feedback by expanding Jim Hendrens A message on extremism in today’s politics (especially on the Republican side) he once helped lead as a state legislator.
Does it apply? No harm done, surely. Arkansas is a very good test. Chris Jones is not a radical leftist. Not even Kelly Kraut. Not even Jesse Gibson, not even Anna Gorman. Not even Pam Whitaker. To nominate candidates for statewide office – governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state and treasurer. They are also competent and qualified. They face proven extremists whose records are full of exaggeration, lies and scaremongering, one with sine streaming thrown in as a bonus and another with bankruptcy and participation in a scammer’s website.
If you believe the polls — agreeable, competent centrists would be lucky to get 40 percent of the vote in Darkansas.
