Nelson announced a series of upcoming breakfast meetings for the Political Animals Club group that will include most of the 2014 gubernatorial candidates. Here are the details:

July 23 – Asa Hutchinson (R)
August 8 – Curtis Coleman (R)
August 16 – Mike Ross (D)
August 20 – Debra Hobbs (R)

Nelson said candidate Bill Halter has not been confirmed for a date yet.
