AR-02: Clarke Tucker (D)

About the District

Campaign Website

About Clarke:

Clarke is a seventh-generation Arkansan and a State Representative respected on both sides of the aisle. As young cancer survivor, Clarke’s bipartisan work to protect access to health care is personal. His decision to run for Congress was spurred by his opponent’s vote to drive up the cost of coverage and strip away protections for people who, like Clarke, live with pre-existing conditions. Clarke’s deep roots in this community, ability to build consensus across party lines, and proven fundraising ability make him the right candidate to win back this seat with Democratic roots.
