The right thing to do was done here.
As for Governor Beebe's outburst last night on the local news channels................"ya gotta watch your back"....tells me everything I need to know. Mr Beebe.......I don't have your back anymore, so if you counted on my vote for you again you can forget it. I usually vote a straight party ballot anyway. This way you know straight up that I'm not going to go behind your back......I'm telling you up front what you can expect from me so that you won't be surprised. I sincerely hope Mr Darr will run against you. He already has my vote. Mr Beebe.....you don't fit in as being governor of this state simply for your public reaction to this........you'll fit in better in Washington DC far removed from your constituents here in the home state. Thanks to Mr Darr for understanding the folks wishes in this state and shedding some light on whom exactly who is working as a team here in the great state of Arkansas.
