LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The 2nd District race in central Arkansas features a conservative Republican incumbent and a traditional liberal as the Democratic challenger.
U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin is seeking a second term in the Nov. 6 vote, saying he wants to continue the work he began to cut government regulation and spending when he was first elected two years ago.
Little Rock attorney Herb Rule is the Democratic nominee and he says the country is on a path that has led to too much government debt and not enough jobs.
Griffin was elected as a Republican tide swept over Arkansas as the GOP turned two congressional seats and one Senate seat.
Griffin says the health overhaul law should be overturned but Rule says it should be kept in place and improved.
