    Campaign radio ads, Presidential Rally in Texas, Texarkana Police arrests two people...

GOP Rep. French Hill criticizes the ad saying "I condemn this outrageous ad in the strongest terms...There's no place in Arkansas for this nonsense."

It had been scheduled for the 8,000-seat NRG Arena, but Pascale tweeted that ticket demand "has been HUGE and unprecedented!"
