Vic Snyder (D, AR-02) breaks and runs.
The usual ‘more time with his family‘ bit, and nothing about a 17 point deficit in the polls. Then again, that’s not too surprising – although it’d be great if just once one of these guys said “I’m not going to throw away ten months of my life on an election that I’m just going to lose anyway?” Admittedly, if Snyder had the nerve to | Read More »
Vic Snyder (D-AR) Trails Griffin
Congressman Vic Snyder was first elected to Congress in 1996. Since his first race, he has never won with less than 58% of the vote. And in 2008, he was re-elected without opposition.

Snyder’s approval rating is now 42%, with 46% of voters in the district disapproving of him. | Read More »

Arkansas 2nd Congressional District
Arkansas’ 2nd Congressional District is represented by http://www.house.gov/snyder/(D). Not being an Arkansas native I don’t yet understand why a state as red as AR is dominated by Democrats. Vic Snyder is originally from the Left Coast state of Oregon and has a voting record that reflects his Oregonian roots and would make Nancy Pelosi proud. Our Governor Mike Beebe is a Democrats, both our Senators, | Read More »
