James Lee Witt announces for 4th District Congress on Tuesday

Posted By on Mon, Nov 4, 2013 at 2:56 PM

James Lee Witt, the Clinton administration FEMA director who went on to establish a successful emergency response and govenrment affairs firm, will announce his plans to run for 4th District Congress via conference call at 1 p.m. Tuesday.

His announcement doesn't say flatly that he will run, but unless he's had second thoughts over the weekend, that's the plan. He'll be the second Democrat in the race, after Janis Percefull of Hot Springs. Two Republicans, Tommy Moll and state Rep. Bruce Westerman, have announced. Given his national profile, I'd guess Witt might enjoy a little edge in name recognition. His contacts should help him raise money.
