We just received a curious press release from the campaign office of Tim Wooldridge, who is running against Bill Halter in the Democratic primary runoff election for lieutenant governor.

Titled “Wooldridge & Hathorn Camps Join Forces,” it announced that “the leadership of Mike Hathorn’s campaign has joined Team Wooldridge.”

So did Hathorn endorse Wooldridge? The release didn’t say, so we called Gary Harpole, consultant to the Wooldridge campaign.

“We haven’t done anything official with Mike personally yet,” Harpole said. “Mike was with Tim in public in Eureka Springs yesterday, and he’s been open about his support for Tim. But as far as an official endorsement, we’re still getting our camps together and Mike is taking a well-deserved rest. We have meetings scheduled with Mike at the beginning of next week.”
