HAYS: A target for Rove Super PAC.
A little context, perhaps, for the decision of Democratic candidate Pat Hays
, the former mayor of North Little Rock, to go on the offensive
against Republican banker J. French Hill
in their race for Congress.
A PoliticoPro Daily Email reports:
AIR WARS, CONT’D — Crossroads to jump into AR-02: American Crossroads is jumping into the Arkansas 2nd district race on behalf of Republican French Hill, according to media trackers. Between Oct. 7 and Oct. 17, the group has reserved more than $1 million in airtime in the Little Rock, a spokesman for the group confirmed. Hill faces Democrat Patrick Henry Hays.
The Super PAC, founded by Karl Rove
, likes to go for the jugular, so we'll likely see some nasty spots attacking Hays this week. Or hey, maybe they'll just trace J. French Hill's roots as a ninth-generation Arkansan. Be sweet, Karl Rove. Be sweet.
