'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.
