The appearance of both Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Beto O’Rourke at the third annual Summer Gathering and Clinton Dinner for the Democratic Party of Arkansas, marks the first time presidential candidates have visited Arkansas before the 2020 election. It could also be an indication of a larger strategy for the Democrats.

KUAR spoke with Heather Yates, assistant professor of political science at the University of Central Arkansas about the upcoming appearances. Below is an excerpt of that conversation.
