Posted By on Wed, May 26, 2010 at 1:42 PM

State Rep. David Cook and State Sen. Steve Bryles today announced their support for Chad Causey in the Democratic primary runoff for the 1st District Congress nomination. Together, their votes would be enough for the win over Tim Wooldridge. But that would assume voters follow endorsements to the letter.


JONESBORO- Today, State Representative David Cook and State Senator Steve Bryles officially endorsed Chad Causey in Blytheville, Jonesboro, and Pocahontas.  Cook, of Sharp County,  and  Bryles, of Mississippi County, received 15% and 10% respectively in the May 18 primary.  Causey received 28%. 
“I am supporting Chad in the runoff because he will stand up and fight for Veterans’ rights,” said Cook.  “He is a strong supporter of education and is the best man for the job. I’m voting for Chad and I hope all my supporters will too.”
“Chad is committed to creating jobs while helping to restore the economy.  His work on two farm bills was invaluable while helping to ensure an adequate safety net for Arkansas farm families,” said Bryles.  “Agriculture is vital to Arkansas’ economy, and Chad will keep working so that we continue produce the safest, most affordable food supply in the world.”
The runoff election will be held June 8th.  Early voting starts June 1st.
“I am very grateful for the support of my former opponents,” said Causey. “I look forward to earning the votes of their supporters in the runoff.  This is an important race, and every vote counts.  Momentum is on our side, and we are going to be come out on top on June 8th.  I will continue my focus on creating jobs here in Arkansas, protecting Social Security and Medicare for seniors, and fighting for farm families and veterans.”
Causey is spend the remaining two weeks of the primary traveling across the district, talking to as many voters as he can, and urging them to return to the polls on June 8th.
Causey was born and raised in the First District of Arkansas.  He graduated from Jonesboro High School, where his mother, Gussi, is still a guidance counselor.  Causey, a Methodist, is engaged to Meredith McNeil of Newport.
