Last Week of Political Campaigning At Hand

OCTOBER 30, 2006 - Posted at 7:38 a.m.

 

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Candidates for governor and other offices in Arkansas have begun their last full week of campaigning before the November 7 election. Arkansas' four members of the U.S. House are seeking reelection but it's the governor's race that has attracted the most attention.

Democrat Mike Beebe -- the state attorney general and a former state legislator -- is leading in the polls. Republican Asa Hutchinson -- the former congressman and federal official -- has focused on repeal of the grocery tax and preservation of rural schools in seeking votes. Green Party nominee Jim Lendall -- a former state legislator -- and independent Rod Bryan also are seeking the governor's office.

As he prepares to leave office at the end of the year, Republican Governor Mike Huckabee has fellow Arkansans wondering if he will run for president in 2008. He has been governor for ten years.
