Arkansas Governor Formally Launches Re-Election Bid
By Andrew DeMillo
Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced Tuesday he’s running for re-election, as the Republican vowed to expand on tax cuts he’s championed since taking office and on efforts to create more jobs in the state.
Hutchinson, who was first elected in 2014, had been widely expected to seek re-election and had already been raising money for next year’s campaign. Hutchinson last month reported having nearly $700,000 cash on hand for his re-election bid.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed serving as governor and there’s a lot of unfinished work out there,” Hutchinson told The Associated Press. “My passion and vision for Arkansas has not subsided in any way, and I want to be able to continue to serve this state.”
