In the first installment of a weekly series looking at Senate races across the country, Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson turns to Arkansas, where one of the most intense Senate races in the nation is playing out.

Michael Hibblen of KUAR in Little Rock, Arkansas, joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to discuss the race, which has been full of personal attacks from both sides.
