Look out Mike Ross

Posted By on Sun, Jul 5, 2009 at 7:17 AM

Well, probably not. But, for the record, an e-mail alerts to a union card-carrying Republican who plans to challenge U.S. Rep. Mike Ross. Get to the right of Ross on gun control? Hard to imagine, but Marc Rosson of Grannis apparently intends to try.


For months I have been traveling across Arkansas's 4th Congressional District and visiting with its citizens.  I have visited with people of different political party affiliations and independents.  I have met with the citizens of different races and of different social standings including the poor.  After great review and thought, I announced, via Twitter, today, the 4th day of July 2009 that I am a candidate for U.S. Congress in the 4th District of Arkansas.

I am from Gillham, Arkansas and grew up dirt poor. I am a blue collar worker and I know how to get my hands dirty to fix a problem.  I am an avid outdoorsman and have an outdoor website as well www.marcrossonoutdoors.com I hold a lifetime sportsman permit in Arkansas and am a member of the Arkansas Bow hunters Ass.  I am a dedicated husband and father of three.  My wife and I have been married 10 years.

If elected Arkansans can depend on me to serve them, I will not sell them out to the highest bidder nor will I represent California or Nevada, a change you will like.  You will have a real conservative with both American and Christian values and a backbone.  Even if elected, you will be able to contact me and I will get back with you.  I am: 
* Pro-Life * Pro-Second Amendment * Against Bailouts and Wasteful spending * For a Strong National Defense * For a Balanced Budget * I will read and understand all bills or they will be voted NO * Legislation Will Not Be Driven By Fear and Ignorance

If elected I will get I-49 completed which will be jobs in both the construction phase and after with better transportation. Once built it will not be used as voter bait again.  I will bring in good paying jobs for Arkansas citizens.  Better jobs, better lives will help my fellow citizens and will also help my fellow gun owners.  I look forward to meeting with you and working for you. Thank you for your time.
