Clarke Tucker releases new ad

Posted By on Thu, May 3, 2018 at 12:41 PM

Yet another television ad released this morning by Clarke Tucker, the state representative running for the Second Congressional District. This is the advantage of a big fundraising haul.

Tucker is vying for the Democratic nomination to take on U.S. Rep. French Hill. The ad itself is more or less boilerplate stuff, but it's clear that Tucker — facing off against three candidates in the primary who have positioned themselves to his left — is focusing squarely on the general election. The ad focuses on veterans and touts Tucker's bona fides as a bipartisan dealmaker. The bipartisan, working-across-the-aisle theme was also present in Tucker's first ad, released earlier this week, which dinged Hill for his vote to strip health insurance from hundreds of thousands of Arkansans.

Before he can challenge Hill, Tucker has to come out on top in the Democratic primary next month. Tucker is the favorite in a crowded field, facing off against teacher and activist Paul Spencer, teacher and activist Gwen Combs, and Jonathan Dunkley, a project manager at the Clinton School of Public Service.
