Race of the Day: Hutchinson vs. Ross in Arkansas

Arkansas isn’t just home to a red-hot Senate contest; it also features one of the best gubernatorial races of the cycle -- between former Republican Congressman Asa Hutchinson and former Democratic Congressman Mike Ross. Current popular Gov. Mike Beebe (D) is term limited. Polls have consistently shown Ross faring worse against Hutchinson than Democrat Mark Pryor against Republican Tom Cotton in the Senate race. Possibly on the line is the state’s “private option” Medicare expansion, with Ross supporting it and Hutchinson saying it needs to be studied.
