Quotes from Chris Jones:
“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.

“In-person Early Voting is underway in every county in Arkansas. I’m asking neighbors all across the state to find a convenient location in your county, and then go make your voice heard!”
