If you needed further proof that the Clintons are pretty much finished in American politics, here you go. A state senator in Arkansas is calling for the removal of the Clintons’ names on Little Rock Airport.
This has got to sting.
The Hill reports:
Ark. lawmaker wants Clintons’ names removed from Little Rock airport
An Arkansas state senator wants to take Bill and Hillary Clinton’s names off the state’s largest airport.
State Sen. Jason Rapert (R) said November’s election results show Arkansans don’t believe the Clintons should have Little Rock’s airport named in their honor.
“The Clintons left Arkansas and do not reside here,” Rapert told The Hill. “Many in our state do not want the first thing people see and last thing they remember about Arkansas being two of the most scandal-ridden politicians in American history.”
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was routed in Arkansas in the presidential election, losing to President-elect Donald Trump 61 percent to 34 percent. Clinton won only eight of the state’s 75 counties — including Pulaski County, where the airport is based. No Democrat has seriously competed for Arkansas’s electoral votes since former President Bill Clinton won reelection in 1996.
Arkansas Democrats will probably fight this with tooth and nail. Frankly, it doesn’t even matter if it happens or not. The mere fact that it’s even being suggested speaks volumes.
Making a recommendation like this would have been unthinkable just a month ago.
