LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A Democrat running for a Republican-held congressional seat in central Arkansas has launched a new television ad highlighting his opposition to his party's leader in the U.S. House, pushing back on GOP attacks he's faced since winning last month's primary.
Clarke Tucker's campaign announced Wednesday that it would air the ad on all four broadcast stations in the 2nd Congressional District, which includes Little Rock and seven central Arkansas counties. Republican Rep. French Hill earlier this month began running an ad that describes Tucker as supported by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi's allies in Washington.
Tucker, a state representative, was promoted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee as the party's best chance to unseat Hill. Tucker has said he won't support Pelosi as Democratic leader or speaker.
