Hill hopes to replace retiring 18-year incumbent Al Williams to become the first Republican in this seat since 1974. He supports a balanced-budget amendment, and has committed himself to reducing or eliminating inheritance taxes. Hill, who has painted opponent Bill Yellowtail as a liberal extremist, hopes to overcome an early poll deficit in this closely watched race, which the local press has called "a battle of opposites."
