  • READY TO RUMBLE: Nate Steel.
State Rep. Nate Steel, the Democratic candidate for attorney general, welcomed Republican runoff winner Leslie Rutledge to the fall race today with a news release that, boiled down, suggests his campaign focus: He's got the chops.

He wrote, in part:

...  “As a prosecutor who has sent dangerous criminals to prison, and a legislator who sponsored the legislation that created the Cybercrimes Unit within the Attorney General’s office, I am the only candidate with the experience to walk into the office ready to go on day one.”

“I intend to continue my work protecting Arkansans as Attorney General,” Rep. Steel said. “As an Arkansan who has spent my whole life in this state that I love, and spent my whole adult life serving, I will work tirelessly every day to protect all of our citizens and defend all of our laws,” Steel concluded.

Nate Steel is currently serving his third term in Arkansas House of Representatives.
From Nashville, Nate represents Howard, Pike, parts of Clark and Hempstead counties. Nate is a sixth generation Arkansan. He serves on the Howard Memorial Hospital Foundation Board of Directors, the Cossatot Community College UofA Foundation Board of Directors and CASA for Children Board of Advisors. Nate is a member of the First United Methodist Church of Nashville, Arkansas.

Rutledge has claimed prosecutorial experience, too. Both emphasize a point really irrelevant in the race. The A.G. is essentially the manager of a big law firm with virtually no prosecutorial duties save representing the state on criminal appeals.
