Democratic Nominee in Arkansas's 2nd District Arrested

This is not the first time this cycle a Democratic nominee in Arkansas has gotten in the news for the wrong reasons; last month, the 3rd District nominee dropped out after he was found to have embellished his military background. Until last year, Arkansas had two Democratic senators and three Democratic House members in a four-person delegation. The House delegation will almost certainly turn all-Republican after the November elections for the first time since Reconstruction. Yet the Democrats' inability to field somewhat competent challengers, even in districts where they weren't expected to win, is arguably a greater indictment of the party's struggles in Arkansas.
