A week after securing their parties' nominations for Arkansas' top office, Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Mike Ross and Republican Asa Hutchinson have agreed to a statewide televised debate.
Republicans and Democrats won't agree on much in this year's election in Arkansas. But they both are on the same page when it comes to avoiding the mistakes that have plagued them in past campaigns.
Democratic candidate Mike Ross raised more than $491,000 over the past month in his bid for Arkansas governor, surpassing his chief Republican rival as the two prepare for their respective primaries next week, according to reports filed Tuesday.
Former President Bill Clinton praised Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Mike Ross on Saturday as the best candidate to lead Arkansas, saying Ross is the only candidate with a proven record of working across party lines in Washington
Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Mike Ross on Friday said he supports a proposal to gradually raise the Arkansas minimum wage to $8.50 an hour by 2017.
In the race for Arkansas governor, Democrat Mike Ross and Republican Asa Hutchinson have regularly traded attacks accusing each other of being more beholden to Washington than the state's voters.
Republican gubernatorial hopeful Curtis Coleman proposed massive cuts to Arkansas' corporate and individual income taxes on Wednesday, saying he viewed the reductions a higher priority than school funding.
Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Mike Ross criticized Republican rival Asa Hutchinson Wednesday for his role in prosecuting the impeachment case against former President Bill Clinton, saying it showed how partisan the former congressman is.
With a tax cut plan that's long on ambition but short a specific timetable, Mike Ross is trying to follow the same script that ended with fellow Democrat Mike Beebe winning the Arkansas governor's race eight years ago. Republican rival Asa Hutchinson is just as eager to flip the script and avoid the same fate he suffered at Beebe's hands in that race.
Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Mike Ross again outpaced his chief Republican rival in fundraising for the state's top office, bringing in more than $540,000 during the last three months of 2013, according to campaign finance reports filed Wednesday.
The annual raccoon supper in Gillett, an Arkansas political tradition, attracted hundreds of voters plus lawmakers from across the state, including Democratic and Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate and for governor.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Former U.S. Rep. Asa Hutchinson raised more than $445,000 in the final three months of 2013 in his bid for the Republican gubernatorial nomination, his campaign announced Friday.
A Senate committee has refused to approve a promotion to admiral for a Navy officer who, as a young fighter pilot during a training mission, deliberately shot down an Air Force plane whose flier has suffered a life of pain from his forced ejection.
When retired Air Force pilot Mike Ross learned this month that the Navy aviator who shot him down is on a nomination list for the rank of admiral, he had a visceral reaction.
Rep. Mike Ross, the only Democrat among Arkansas' four House members, announced Monday he won't seek re-election next year.
"As a former quorum court member, state senator and U.S. Congressman, Mike Ross has a strong record of being tough on crime and supporting our law enforcement community and first responders, which is why 65 of the state's 75 county sheriffs have endorsed Mike Ross and his campaign for Arkansas's future," Ross spokesman Brad Howard said in an email.
Democratic gubernatorial nominee Mike Ross has said he supports continuing the private option, while Republican Asa Hutchinson has said he'll continue to monitor the program and would push for the private option's end if it didn't meet the promises.
