JONESBORO – First District Congressional candidate, United States Army veteran, and agri-business owner Rick Crawford announced the endorsement of Terry Green today. Green, who ran in the six-man race for the Democratic nomination in May, stated that Rick Crawford is the clear choice for voters in November.
“I got to know Rick as we met at various campaign events across the District and found him dedicated to the people of the First District more than he was any political party” said Green. “I believe Rick Crawford will put us first in Washington as he fights to restore our economy, put people back to work, and implement common-sense based healthcare reform.”
Green was born and raised in Dewitt. He earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Arkansas, completed a surgical internship at Baylor University in Dallas and an orthopedic residency at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Green served in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves for six years. He has been married for 35 years and has four grown children and two grandchildren.
“It is an honor to receive the endorsement of Dr. Green. It was a pleasure getting to know Dr. Green as we met on the campaign trail during the primary season and found him to be a passionate American who wanted to do what was right for the people of the First District” said Crawford. “I share those same passions as Dr. Green and I look forward to working with him as we continue on to November 2nd” concluded Crawford.
This is the ninth endorsement for Rick Crawford. The most recent endorsements come from three senior advisors that served on the Tim Wooldridge for Congress Campaign.
