Political extremists 

The spring issue of Intelligence Report, a publication of the Southern Poverty Law Center, included two Arkansans on a list of 23 "right-wing extremists" who ran for public office in America last year. Five of the candidates were elected, including one of the Arkansans. State Rep. Loy Mauch, R-Bismarck, is serving his first term in the legislature. Intelligence Report identified him as a "Neo-Confederate, white nationalist." The other Arkansan on the list, Billy Roper of Russellville, received 49 votes running as a write-in candidate for governor. Intelligence Report calls him a "White supremacist, neo-Nazi."
