Arkansas Week August 16, 2019
(Klobuchar, O’Rourke) Two blues pay their dues in the Wonder State, but how much traction can they find in a state so resolutely Red? (Guns and Politics) Like so many other candidates of their party, are they not asking more of Arkansas than even its voters will consider? (Casino Controversy) How badly, if at all, does Pope County want what Crittenden, Jefferson and Garland counties have, and when will it get it? (Tariffs and Topsoil) But first: the trade wars hobbling Arkansas business, including agriculture. Questions for Arkansas’s senior U.S. Senator.
Panelists: U.S. Sen. John Boozman; Heather Yates – UCA, Political Science Dept.; Christopher Housenick – Arkansas Tech Univ., Political Science Dept.
