LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Mike Beebe (bee-bee) has taken the oath of office for his second and final term as Arkansas governor.
During his inaugural address on Tuesday, Beebe touted the state's recent achievements in education and economic development.
The inaugural festivities will continue Tuesday night with a formal ball in downtown Little Rock.
The incumbent Democratic governor has a lot to celebrate: He weathered a pro-GOP, anti-incumbent election season to win every county in the state.
Some Republicans even admit that Beebe's popularity among Arkansas residents helped exempt him from an anti-Democrat tide during the fall elections.
