Democratic candidate for governor Mike Ross and Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor John Burkhalter will make a joint announcement at 4 p.m. “about the future of Arkansas.” Presumably they’ll be endorsing each other, which was to be expected. They’re the Democratic establishment’s picks for the two offices.

UPDATE: They did indeed endorse each other. Press release follows, as well as a press release from Democratic candidate Dianne Curry, responding to the slate (the Curry campaign really needs to get someone to help them craft press releases).
