Tim Hutchinson's Ex -Wife to Seek State House Seat

AUGUST 23, 2005 - Posted at 7:43 a.m. CDT

BELLA VISTA, AR - The mother of two state legislators and the ex-wife of a former U.S. Senator says she will run for office next year.

Donna Hutchinson of Bella Vista, a Republican, says she will run for the House District 98 seat.  She said she has volunteered in many campaigns, but hadn't considered one of her own until state Representative Shirley Borhauer suggested that she run to replace her.

Borhauer, also a Republican from Bella Vista, holds the District 98 seat but is barred by term limits from serving another term.

Hutchinson is the ex-wife of former U.S. Senator Tim Hutchinson, who also is a former state legislator.  Their twins, Timothy Hutchinson of Lowell and Jeremy Hutchinson of Little Rock, serve in the state House of Representatives.

Jeremy is term-limited.  But if Donna and Timothy win their races, they would serve in the House together in 2007.  No one else has announced plans to run for the District 98 seat.
