Capitol View: 2nd Congressional District Candidates

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- With 2018 just a few weeks away, congressional candidates are also looking ahead toward next year's primaries. 

This week, a second Democratic candidate announced she's jumping into the race for Arkansas's second congressional district -- currently represented by Congressman French Hill. 

Gwen Combs is a teacher and Air Force veteran.  She's challenging Paul Spencer who teaches at Catholic High School. 

This week, Spencer joins host Jessi Turnure to talk about his campaign and push for ethics law reform.

"I'm hoping that tighter ethical control of our elections, looking at money in politics, how that goes, where it comes from, and who gets to spend it on whom, and finance issues are the big things for me and I hope that by not taking PAC money and campaign contributions from non-human entities that that serves as an example."

Plus, we take a deep dive into the business of medical marijuana.  This week, Little Rock hosted a trade show based around the implementation of medical marijuana in Arkansas.

Capitol View airs Sunday mornings at 8:30 a.m. on KARK-TV directly before NBC's Meet the Press.  It is hosted by Jessi Turnure.

You can watch this week's full episode above.
