From Tom's Notes
As Pulaski County goes, so goes the general election for US Congress in the Second District.
In 2004, Marvin Parks lost to Congressman Snyder by 43,445 votes, with 43,055 of the spread coming from Pulaski County alone. If Parks could have garnered 50.3% of the vote in Pulaski County, he would be our Congressman today.
I am from Pulaski County. I spent my teen years in North Little Rock, graduating from Northeast HS in 1977.
I spent fifteen of my adult years in Maumelle, where I saw the population go from 3,300 to 14,000. I was actively engaged in that community as a volunteer, coach, and elected official.
I have lived in Little Rock for a total of five years, and have done business in the Little Rock metro area for 23 years, or since my opponent in the primary was in the seventh grade, in Sheridan.
If I am elected to represent the Republican party in the November election, I will be the first opponent Congressman Snyder has faced with the following political profile: A candidate who HAS WON 2 ELECTIONS WITHIN THE BORDERS OF PULASKI COUNTY IN THE PAST FIVE YEARS.
This would give the Republican Party a candidate with a political profile which could quite possibly give Congressman Snyder problems in the general election in November.
Given the opportunity, I can, and will, win 50%+ of the vote in Pulaski County vs. Congressman Snyder.
Just a thought.
