LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Democratic congressional hopeful James Lee Witt’s campaign says it’s removing or properly labeling a batch of yard signs that didn’t have the proper disclaimers on them after state Republicans complained about them to the Federal Election Commission.

The state GOP on Tuesday announced it had filed a complaint with the FEC over the yard signs. GOP officials sent a letter to the commission and attached photos of three Witt yard signs that Republicans say didn’t have the disclaimer saying who had paid for them.

Witt’s campaign said it had recently become aware of the signs.

Witt is running against Republican state Rep. Bruce Westerman for the 4th Congressional District, which stretches across southern and western Arkansas. Witt headed the Federal Emergency Management Agency under former President Bill Clinton.
