RUNNING AGAINST HER WOULD PRACTICALLY BE RACIST: Princella Smith announces for Congress. “Princella Smith, 26, will announce on Saturday that she is running for Congress in Arkansas’s 1st District. Some would say she is too young. Others might point to other potential hurdles: She’s running in eastern Arkansas, a district that hasn’t elected a Republican since 1872 in a Southern state that has never elected a black person to a congressional or state-wide office.” Given the Democrats’ stated concern for diversity, I guess they won’t run anyone against her if she wins the primary.
