Most interesting news tidbit from tonight’s L.A. fundraiser for Mike Beebe, running against rising (he hopes) GOP star Asa Hutchinson for governor of Arkansas:
Lee Scott, the CEO of Wal-Mart, held a fundraiser for Beebe in Arkansas.
Has the Empire of Mr. Sam decided that casting its lot with political reaction is no longer a winning growth strategy? Is the CEO class starting to wonde whether corrupt and incompetent Republican government is actually good for business? Search me. But I’d be happy to believe either one.
Footnote The fundraiser, at the home of Ron Burkle, was organized by Mike Webber and featured Wesley Clark.
