An Arkansas Republican party official is using colorful language to warn Hillary Clinton about her future political prospects in her adopted home state.
Asked how Clinton would fare in Arkansas if she pursued the presidency in 2016, 2nd Congressional District chairman Johnny Rhoda told U.S. News, "She'd probably get shot at the state line."
When a reporter noted that Clinton undoubtedly enjoys a measurable amount of support in a state where her husband served as governor, Rhoda replied, "Nobody has any affection for her. The majority don't."
Recent polling has shown the Clinton brand remains durable in Arkansas, even though it's been more than two decades since former President Bill Clinton served as governor there. Hillary Clinton led every potential Republican challenger except Mike Huckabee – also a former Arkansas governor – in a late April Public Policy Polling survey.
Though Mitt Romney carried the state by 24 points in 2012, a Clinton candidacy would make the race for Arkansas' six electoral votes competitive.
Rhoda though, doesn't think she's got a chance.
