The Springfield News-Leader's Roseann Moring brings us an interesting tidbit of campaign news. Ike Skelton is running for office -- Todd Isaac Skelton that is -- as a Tea Party candidate in the 146th State House District.
Maybe he is hoping for decades' worth of name ID to work in his favor?
But by the looks of his Facebook page, he fits the the stereotypical Tea Party mold. For instance, here he is with the "Tac Girls." He met them at the world's largest gun show in Tulsa, Oklahoma. According to his caption for the pic: "They have a website, and sell calendars."
Like the headline says, not your parents' Ike Skelton.
