“I am excited about our upcoming bus tour of the First District and look forward to talking directly to Arkansas voters about the ways I’m continuing to fight to change the way Washington does business.  For the first time since World War II we have cut discretionary domestic spending for two years in a row, but there is more we must do.  We need to keep pushing for permanent spending reforms like a Balanced Budget Amendment, repeal Obamacare, and rein in burdensome regulations that hurt small businesses,” said Crawford.

Rick Crawford has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Federation for Independent Business (NFIB) and National Right To Life.  For more information visit
