Two speakers from Arkansas took digs at Hillary Clinton during the Republican convention Tuesday.
Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson argued that the presumptive Democratic nominee would be a continuation of President Obama’s tenure.
“If you liked the last eight years, then Hillary would give you double for your trouble,” he said.
Hutchinson has crossed paths with the Clintons before. In the 1980s, he sent Bill Clinton’s half-brother, Roger, to jail on cocaine charges. After only a year in Congress, he served as an impeachment manager against Bill Clinton.
Early in the Republican primary, however, he said the scandal had no place in the 2016 election.
Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge also spoke Tuesday. She began by noting that she serves in the same office that launched Bill Clinton’s career, arguing the couple is corrupt.
“Hillary is a lawyer, but she acts like the law doesn’t apply to her,” she told the convention.
U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton, a rising star out of Arkansas, spoke on Monday night, though he did not take the opportunity to discuss the Clintons.
