A blue wave in Arkansas isn’t possible. Not enough seats are being contested at the state legislative level. But a ripple perhaps? The Arkansas Democratic Party hopes to give it some encouragement this week with events including visits from national Democrats.
Music and an appearance by Stacey Abrams, the Democratic nominee for Georgia governor, is set from 6 to 10 p.m. at South on Main.
A block party from 6 to 9 p.m. at Democratic Party headquarters on Capitol Avenue.
Arkansas candidates will speak.
The Democratic State Committee will meet Saturday morning at the Marriott, followed by the state convention. Candidates will speak and U.S. Rep. Grace Meng of New York will speak at 12:15 p.m.
The Clinton Dinner will be from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Statehouse Convention Center. Key speaker is Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, though to have national aspirations.
Stay tuned for our next Rock the Culture podcast, which will include an interview with Stacey Abrams.
