LITTLE ROCK — State Representative and candidate for Arkansas’s 2nd Congressional District Clarke Tucker has been endorsed by members of the historic Little Rock Nine. A Central High School graduate, Tucker said the endorsement is “so meaningful on a personal level” and “overwhelming and motivating” in his candidacy for Congress.
The campaign put out a corresponding video with member Ernest Green, in which Green says, “I represent the other Little Rock Nine in support of your candidacy.” Green goes on to say, “I know you are going to do an outstanding job and the 2nd District is going to have an outstanding Congressman.”
“I have been in awe of the Little Rock Nine my entire life,” Tucker said. “Understanding their sacrifices and achievements that moved our state and entire country forward, and knowing I have their support now, is both overwhelming and motivating. I will attempt to follow their examples of courage, leadership, and sacrifice for the greater good as I run this race and as I live my life each day.”
