Crawford Launches Democrats for Crawford Coalition

JONESBORO – First District Congressional candidate, United States Army veteran, and agri-business owner Rick Crawford announced his newest coalition – Democrats for Crawford.  Dewaine Malone, of Lake City, will be the chairman.  Malone, who is a lifetime Democrat, says the liberal agenda in Washington is out of control and out of touch.

“I have been a registered Democrat all my life and the people in Washington are too liberal and out of touch with the folks here in Arkansas,” said Malone.  “While I will continue to support Democrats locally, I believe we need someone in Washington that can stand up to Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama’s agenda.”

Malone was born and raised in Craighead County and went on to a 26 year career with the Arkansas State Police where he was stationed in Mississippi County.  Upon retiring from the Arkansas State Police, Malone moved back to Lake City where he has served as the Sheriff for the Eastern District of Craighead County the last ten years.

“It is an honor to have Dewaine as the chairman for our Democrats for Crawford Coalition,” said Crawford.  “Like many lifelong Democrats in the First District, Dewaine understands that the liberal Pelosi agenda is driving our country further and further to the edge of the cliff.  I am looking forward to working with Dewaine and other conservative Democrats so I can go to Washington and be a check and balance against the Pelosi-Obama agenda.”

”We need someone in Washington that can stand up Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama.  We need someone who will put the people of Arkansas first.  The only person in this race who can do that is Rick Crawford.  He has my full support,” concluded Malone.
