GOP Official Resigns Over Hillary Remark

An Arkansas Republican official is learning the hard way that off-handed comments about Hillary Clinton getting shot aren’t taken lightly. The state Republican Party’s 2nd District chairman Johnny Rhoda resigned over suggesting on Tuesday that the former Secretary of State would "get shot"  if she came to Arkansas. When asked how Arkansas would react to a Clinton 2016 run for president, Rhoda said “She’d probably get shot at the state line. Nobody has any affection for her. The majority don’t.” Rhoda's resignation was announced Wednesday. Arkansas Republican Party Chairman Doyle Webb said Rhoda “knows that his statements have created an unnecessary distraction from the important issues before the state today.”
