Mike Ross hits TV — and Asa

Posted By on Wed, May 21, 2014 at 10:48 AM


Democratic gubernatorial nominee Mike Ross did next-to-no campaigning against a token opponent in the primary, conserving cash to begin hitting expected Republican opponent Asa Hutchinson as soon as possible. First effort above. He's mixing an attack on Hutchinson's past as a DC lobbyist with some small-town positive messaging.

Ross joins Hutchinson in reaching out to the "middle class." Social scientists will tell you most people identify themselves as "middle class." So when a voter hears such an ad, they might think the candidate is talking to them.

Hutchinson responded by saying China-related legislation the ad references was supported by Arkansas Democrats in Congress and President Clinton. He said he'd rather talk about Nancy Pelosi and Obamacare.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
