Vic Snyder’s Former Cheif of Staff, David Bowling is in the second district race.
David Boling, Arkansas Democratic Rep. Vic Snyder’s former chief of staff, announced Friday that he is running for the congressional seat that Snyder is vacating.
Boling said he will seek the Democratic nomination for the 2nd District in central Arkansas. Earlier in the day, Boling had announced he was stepping down from Snyder’s staff. He has served as Snyder’s chief of staff since 2007.
Boling is the third Democrat to join the House race since Snyder announced earlier this month he would not seek re-election. House Speaker Robbie Wills and state Sen. Joyce Elliott of Little Rock have said they’re running for Snyder’s seat.
He declined to say why he is running, but plans to formally announce next week when we will likely get a better picture of what he intends to do as a congressman.
