Today in Arkansas: Oaklawn lobbying hard against expansion of lottery

Johnny Rhoda, the 2nd District chairman of the Arkansas Republican Party, resigned after saying Hillary Clinton wouldn't be well received as a political candidate in Arkansas and would probably be shot at the state line. There are several more judges for Jason Rapert to add to his list of those unfit for the bench. And more.
