My name is Clarke Tucker, and I am a lifelong Arkansan who grew up right here in Little Rock and went to Central High School. After attending law school at the University of Arkansas, I returned to Little Rock because there is no place on earth I would rather live, work, and raise my family. In 2014, I ran for the state legislature, serving two terms representing my friends, family, and neighbors in House District 35. During those four years, I focused on empowering our state’s families, workers, seniors, and children by working across the aisle to get things done.
In 2017, I was diagnosed with bladder cancer. I am so grateful to be able to say I am cancer-free today, but that experience gave me a newfound perspective on life and deepened my understanding of what public service is all about.
My family, faith, and community are what guide me, inspire me, and ultimately make me who I am. To me, running for office is about serving those who have shaped me and ensuring that every Arkansan has the opportunity to succeed in their version of the American dream.
I have a law practice in Little Rock, where my incredible wife Toni and I live and raise our two active and always entertaining kids, Ellis and Mari Francis.
