French Hill, Republican congressional candidate, touts money effort

Posted By on Thu, Jan 16, 2014 at 7:11 AM

French Hill, the Little Rock banker seeking the 2nd District congressional seat as a Republican, reports raising $568,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013 and says he has $534,000 on hand, with no debt. He characterizes his money effort as a record for a Republican candidate in the district.

No reports yet on his Republican opponent, state Rep. Ann Clemmer.

Noted, too, was that Hill filed a report this week for a state House seat he was planning to seek before Tim Griffin's surprise announcement that he wouldn't seek re-election this year. Hill raised more than $137,000 and has returned most of it to contributors. Clemmer, too, filed a state report showing she'd returned to contributors most of the $85,000 she'd raised for a state Senate race she abandoned when the 2nd District slot came opem.

Also missing is a report from Patrick Henry Hays, the Democratic candidate for 2nd District.

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states.

From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
