"Mitt! Mitt! He's our man if he can't do it, no one can!" chanted supporters.
Groups of sign-bearers shared the same piece of the sidewalk, separated only by just a few feet and their feelings about Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney.
"Mitt Romney is our best chance of turning things around, in his life he's successful," said supporter Chad Towe.
"I don't like him, don't trust him, think he's an ineffectual leader," said protester Daniel Lilly.
Standing outside the Capital Hotel many voiced their outrage over the price tag of the Romney fundraisers inside.
"$50,000 is a salary for a couple with two jobs," a protester shouted at cars passing by.
"I was let down, I didn't get a wave or thumbs up or something," added Towe.
When Little Rock police officers moved the group from the entrance way of the Capital Hotel, they found themselves on common ground, both sides fighting for their freedom of speech.
"I've done a lot of rallies in my life we have never been pushed to the sidewalk like we are," said Towe.
"People want to be heard and seen, not pushed in the corner," said Arenza Thigpen Jr.
While there was been a lot of talk about the price of the events, Mitt Romney supporters said they understood he had to raise money, but hope that he comes back again to meet more every day Arkansans.
