Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel's admission of an "inappropriate" relationship with a woman who isn't his wife could mean an opportunity for another Arkansas Democrat in the gubernatorial primary, where McDaniel has been considered the frontrunner.
Retiring 4th District Rep. Mike Ross is being urged to consider the race, Arkansas Talk Business reports:
Ross told Talk Business earlier this week, when asked if he would endorse a candidate in the governor's race, "If I wanted to be actively involved in the Governor's race, I would have run myself."
The congressman ruled out a gubernatorial run earlier this year, though, and the story notes that he is soon starting a new job with Southwest Power Pool.
