Congressman Rick Crawford Endorses Congressman Tim Griffin for Lieutenant Governor
Praises Griffin’s “thoughtful leadership” at Jonesboro press conference
JONESBORO – At a press conference in Jonesboro today, Rep. Rick Crawford (AR-01) officially endorsed Rep. Tim Griffin (AR-02) in the race for Arkansas Lieutenant Governor:
“I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Tim for the last several years and have seen first hand his ability to be a leader of and advocate for conservative principles like smaller government, fiscal restraint and responsibility, and the sanctity of life,” said Crawford. “Tim continues to stand up against President Obama’s misguided policies like higher taxes and Obamacare. I believe that Tim’s thoughtful leadership combined with his first hand experience as an accomplished legislator will serve every Arkansan well as the next Lieutenant Governor for the State of Arkansas.”
“I’m honored to have Rick’s endorsement in this race and the support of so many folks in Northeast Arkansas,” said Griffin. “I’m excited about the opportunity to continue in public service. I look forward to traveling all over our state and talking with more and more Arkansans about what we can accomplish together.”
