'Christian' Clemmer rips 'fat cat' Hill in 2nd District ad

Meow. State Rep. Ann Clemmer takes the gloves off in new advertising hitting Republican 2nd District Congress opponent French Hill, a Little Rock banker, as a fat cat. I thought the Republicans venerated people who toil to create personal wealth.

Clemmer's ad opens with a page from Republican attorney general Leslie Rutledge's playbook. She brands herself as "Christian, pro-life, conservative." She'll fight liberals, she vows.


Hill does have a much fatter campaign bankroll than Clemmer, thus the sharpened claws in the ads Clemmer has produced.

PS: That "half-billion" tax increase Hill supported was a 10-year, $50 million increase in the Little Rock sales tax — overwhelmingly approved by city voters — to pay for a variety of city services.

Colonel Reynolds is also in this fray.

  • Coalition building

    In 1993 a group of Arkansas grassroots, religious and labor leaders got together to strategize how they could more effectively move positive reforms through our often resistant legislature. The leaders were frustrated that big business interests worked together to win favors and block reforms, while community and worker interests were isolated and often defeated.
