Rapert won't go for Lt. Gov. job. Too bad.

Posted By on Wed, Jun 5, 2013 at 4:13 PM


State Sen. Jason Rapert, the Republican from Conway who authored Arkansas's 12-week abortion ban, which has not gone into effect thanks to a federal court injunction, announced today he'll seek re-election to his Senate seat in 2014.

Rapert had been considering a run for lieutenant governor, saying his family was "praying" over it. The Lord, apparently, told Rapert to stay put in the Senate.

Others had been praying for Rapert to run for lieutenant governor, an office in which he could do little harm.
