Quotes from Chris Jones:
“Early Voting continues this week through Monday, November 7, and not including Sunday, November 6. I’m asking neighbors all across the state not only to find a convenient location in your county and vote, but to take the extra step to get others to the polls.”

“We are getting closer and closer to closing the gap in this election every day, and it’s because Arkansans – including Independents and moderate Republicans – want a governor that will spread opportunity across the state like PB&J. That’s high-quality education starting with Preschool, solid infrastructure starting with Broadband for all & real economic development starting with good, high-paying Jobs. Early voting is where all the so-called experts will see the energy and enthusiasm that has been underestimated so far in this election”

“Together, we can make history. Together, we can build a state where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
