Arkansas State Sen. Jason Rapert doesn’t believe his state’s largest airport should be named after Bill and Hillary Clinton any more.
Rapert told the Hill newspaper that the election, and the former secretary of state’s puny percentage in her husband’s home state, proved that Arkansans were done with the Clintons, whose names appear on the airport in Little Rock.
‘The Clinton left Arkansas and do not reside here,’ the lawmaker told the Hill. ‘Many in our state do not want the first thing people see and last thing they remember about Arkansas being two of the most scandal-ridden politicians in American history.’….
The Republican president-elect won the state with 61 percent support, compared to Hillary Clinton’s 34 percent.
She won just eight of the states 75 counties.
Though she did win Pulaski County, where the airport is situated.
Previously it had been named after Capt. George Geyer Adams, a member of the Arkansas Army National Guard who had an accident and was killed at the airport in 1937.
Rapert, a Republican, would like to see the airport return to its roots and have the name changed back to Adams….
