Can a Democrat win a House race in western Little Rock? I think so. And I think the Democrats have a strong candidate for House District 32, now held by Republican Allen Kerr. She’s Barbara Graves, businesswoman, former Chamber of Commerce president and former city director who made a strong race for mayor against Mark Stodola.
Kerr’s battle against state employee double-dipping will give him some electoral power (if not with state employees). But he totes a fair amount of baggage, too, among them his opposition to providing women with free preventive care, including birth control pills, in their health insurance plans. Her news release follows.
