Former Little Rock School Board Member Dianne Curry Running for US House

LITTLE ROCK - A former member of the Little Rock School Board said Wednesday she's running for a U.S. House seat in central Arkansas, the first Democrat to launch a congressional bid in the state for 2016.

Dianne Curry said she was running for the party's nomination to challenge Republican Rep. French Hill in the 2nd Congressional District. Hill was elected in November and is seeking a second term in the House.

"I feel that I have the ability and I have had the ambition for a long time to move forward," Curry told The Associated Press. "For me, this is an opportune time to move forward and represent the people of my community."

Curry said she'll detail her campaign proposals in the coming months but that she wants to focus on health, education, jobs and the economy.

3. I can't believe how red it's become

Last year's election was a disaster of epic proportions
