LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The founder of the Political Animals Club says he started it 30 years ago as a "little group" where Arkansans could get together and talk about politics. Now it's become a required stop for the state's top political figures.
Gov. Mike Beebe and former Govs. Jim Guy Tucker, David Pryor and Dale Bumpers joined other elected officials on Wednesday to mark the 30th anniversary of the Political Animals Club. The group meets regularly to hear from politically connected figures from around the state.
Skip Rutherford, who founded the group, said he was proud to see how much the group had grown since he started it in 1983. Rutherford helped establish the Clinton Library and is now dean of the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service.
