Crawford Earns Key Endorsement from Statewide Republican Group
JONESBORO – First District Congressional candidate, former United States Army Sergeant, and agri-business owner Rick Crawford today received the formal endorsement of the Arkansas Federation of College Republicans in his campaign to unseat Marion Berry.
“Having grown up in Forrest City and graduated from Wynne High School I know the traditional American values of Northeast Arkansas and I know Rick Crawford exemplifies these qualities,” said Tom Norsworthy, Chairman of the AFCR. “ He understands the challenges that college students and young professionals face in the First Congressional District and will work hard to provide better paying jobs, decrease the tax burden on family farms and businesses, as well as control spending in congress. I am confident that he will represent the First District’s conservative values.”
“I am honored to receive the endorsement from the future leaders of our nation,” said Crawford. “I want to go to Washington and apply traditional American values to the legislative process to ensure that today’s college students will have the same opportunities that I and many others before me have had to start their own business, enjoy lower taxes, and the opportunity of better paying jobs. I am proud to have their support,” said Crawford.
