Fellow legislators line up behind Sen. Baker for U.S. Senate

Conway, AR – State Senator Gilbert Baker announced today the endorsements from a majority of Republicans in the Arkansas House of Representatives and Senate in his bid for the United States Senate. The list of endorsements is as follows:

Senator Denny Altes, Fort Smith
Senator Johnny Key, Mountain Home
Senator Bill Pritchard, Fayetteville
Senator Sharon Trusty, Russellville

Representative John Burris, Harrison
Representative Ann Clemmer, Benton
Representative Robert Dale, Dover
Representative Jonathan Dismang, Beebe
Representative Jane English, North Little Rock
Representative Ed Garner, Maumelle
Representative Frank Glidewell, Fort Smith
Representative Rick Green, Van Buren
Representative Karen Hopper, Mountain Home
Representative Allen Kerr, Little Rock
Minority Leader Bryan King, Green Forest
Representative Andrea Lea, Russellville
Representative Stephanie Malone, Fort Smith
Representative Mark Martin, Prairie Grove
Representative Beverly Pyle, Cedarville
Representative Roy Ragland, Marshall
Representative Terry Rice, Waldron
Representative Bill Sample, Hot Springs Village
Representative Jon Woods, Springdale

“Arkansans will hopefully have the opportunity to get to know Senator Baker the way I, and many other Republicans, have the last several years,” stated Bryan King, current Republican House Minority Leader. “He has raised money, recruited conservative candidates, and stepped up to the plate for the Republican Party of Arkansas when we were facing massive debt and a hefty fine from the FEC. I’ve worked with him in the legislature and know him to be a solid conservative and a true leader within the Republican Party.”

“I’m grateful that so many of my colleagues would support my candidacy for the U.S. Senate,” Sen. Baker said. “There is a lot at stake in this election, and I am thrilled that my fellow legislators would support our campaign at this critical juncture.”

“Gilbert Baker is the strongest Republican candidate that we as Republicans can nominate to challenge Blanche Lincoln,” stated Senator Johnny Key (Mountain Home). “In addition, he has a proven record of cutting taxes and balancing a budget which is greatly needed in Washington DC.”

Baker announced his candidacy on September 1st and raised over $500,000 in the first month of the campaign.

“I want to represent Arkansas in the United States Senate,” stated Baker. “Arkansans deserve a Senator who will never be a swing vote on government-run healthcare, union card check, and cap and trade legislation. I want to be a check and balance on Barack Obama’s extreme agenda. “

    State Auditor Andrea Lea, who began her tenure in statewide office with a degree of competence unseen in some other Republican counterparts (think Treasurer Dennis Milligan particularly), is becoming more deeply mired in a political scandal.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
