LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A substitute teacher who lost to Mike Ross in last month’s Democratic gubernatorial primary is backing Republican nominee Asa Hutchinson.

Hutchinson’s campaign announced Monday that Lynette Bryant is endorsing the Republican in the November election. Bryant lost the Democratic nomination to Ross in which she won about 16 percent of the vote in the May 20 primary.

Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe is barred by term limits from seeking re-election this fall.
