Gunning for votes

How do you know it's election season in Arkansas? By how the candidates dress. When they're in camouflage and hoisting guns, assuring voters of their 2nd Amendment support, their manly embrace of cold dawns and long underwear, you know they're ready to go in for the kill. Here on this page you've got your Sen. Mark Pryor from last year's duck season, on the lookout for a flyby from Tom Cotton; state Rep. Nate Bell proving he's no cowering Bostonian by holding up a slain bear by the ears; bow hunter Bruce Westerman illustrating he's got the Fourth District by the horns; states-rights candidate Leslie Rutledge with the attorney general's seat in her sights; and the sun rising over an armed gubernatorial candidate Asa Hutchinson. We couldn't find a photograph yet of Hutchinson's opponent, Mike Ross, in the deer woods, but did find one with him wearing pink beads, for the Race for the Cure. We expect to see him in waders soon.
