    My approach is simple: if we’ve got a problem, let’s use our common sense and do the hard work necessary to solve it.

AETN Debate

October 14, 2014Press Release

Friends,

Today I participated in the Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) debate with candidates in the 4th Congressional District race. There are notable differences among me and my opponents. 

I have consistently stated throughout this campaign that I will not be a prisoner to any political party or ideology. I will work with Democrats and Republicans in furtherance of policies focused on the best interests of Arkansas residents. This statement was clearly demonstrated in today’s debate. 

Whether it's the issue of infrastructure, agriculture, foreign policy, Ebola, or immigration, the voters of the 4th District have a clear choice. I hope you will take a moment to watch this debate as I believe it shows why I am the best candidate to represent the citizens of the 4th District.

Remember early voting begins next Monday, Oct. 20 with Election Day on Tuesday, Nov. 4.

Thanks for your support!

Sincerely,
