Tim Griffin, Rising Star

Last updated: Jul 31, 2020 | Jan 06, 2010

The former U.S. attorney who resigned under pressure over the 2007 scandal over politicization of appointments — and whom I spotlighted as a Bush administration veteran who’s doing surprisingly well in the Obama era — has been advanced to “contender” status in the NRCC’s “Young Guns” program. It’s the second level in a three-tier process to help candidates who are showing promise. The most interesting part of the press release may be how Griffin is described.

As a fifth generation Arkansan, Tim Griffin understands what central Arkansans deserve from their representatives in Congress. Griffin has served in the United States Army Reserve for 13 years, was deployed to Iraq and currently holds the rank of major. Griffin served as the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas and is a Little Rock community leader. Tim Griffin’s dedication and selfless service to his country and to his community make him an excellent candidate for Congress.

Griffin only served as U.S. attorney for seven months, and after he resigned he gave a tearful speech to schoolchildren in which he warned them that public service was “not worth it.” Democrats I’ve spoken to in Arkansas consider Rep. Vic Snyder (D-Ark.) their most vulnerable incumbent, but are licking their chops over the chance to attack Griffin’s record in government.
