• THOMASON: I’m out.

Arkansas Business reports that former state legislator and current chancellor of the University of Arkansas Community College at Hope Chris Thomason will not run for Rep. Mike Ross’s seat in 2012. We included a brief rundown of some potential candidates for the Fourth District seat, which included Thomason, in this week’s Insider column.


As Max noted earlier, David Boling has also tapped out of a race for the Second District. Potential Democratic contenders are dropping like flies. Feel free to post your thoughts, or wild, unfounded speculation as to who WILL get into the race in the comments section.
