LITTLE ROCK Ark. (Reuters) - An Arkansas Republican official has resigned after telling a magazine former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would "probably get shot" if she returned to the state where she was a lawyer and served as first lady, officials said on Thursday.
Clinton, seen as the front runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, is set to return to Arkansas on Friday to sign copies of her new memoir. Her husband was the state's governor for 12 years before winning the White House in 1992.
Johnny Rhoda, who was chairman of the Republican Party in the Second Congressional District in Arkansas, was quoted in U.S. News this week as saying Clinton could not expect much political support in the state if she ran for president.
"She'd probably get shot at the state line," Rhoda, an insurance agent and the pastor of a small congregation about 70 miles (110 kms) north of the state capital, Little Rock, was quoted as saying by the magazine.
"Nobody has any affection for her. The majority don't," he was quoted as saying.

He probably thought he was being funny, but people need to realize sarcasm doesn’t translate into print well.
Republicans are the Clinton’s best friends.
Pretty dumb. One of the things we learned long ago on FR is that you NEVER talk or joke about politicians getting shot.
Just like you never joke about bombs in an airport.
Good geief, he didn’t make a movie about her assassination or something.
It only works one way. The Dhimmis can say it all they want.
I know the GOP is the stupid party but this was way beyond.
Someone said on a post the other day that Hillary has probably lost a step or two since her days of dodging sniper bullets in Bosnia...(snork, snork)!
But it’s not stupid when the left makes a movie about the decapitation of a sitting President. Got it.
More PC control by the Democrats.
I sure he meant vaccinated. Who knows where she has been?
Very stupid thing to say anywhere about any politician.
Whimp! He flushed himself out. Who needs another spineless Pube anyway.
Remember how outraged the democrats were when that democrat in California said President Bush should not visit his city, because he’d be shot?
