Green Party U.S. Senate nominee John Gray is interviewed by northwest Arkansas’ KHBS 40/29 TV station. Gray says he knows he’s a long-shot and explains part of his reason for running for the U.S. Senate.
Gray wants to reverse globalization, reduce government spending, and slow down corporate influence.
Gray, a retired engineer, spent several years working for a corporation that moved over a 1,000 jobs to Mexico.
"I didn’t help the Mexicans. I didn’t help the Americans, but I made some plant managers and corporations a lot of money," Gray said.
He said he is campaigning for the U.S. Senate seat to make amends for outsourcing jobs.
"I felt like it was something needed to do to sleep easy," Gray said.
Gray is the mayor of Greenland in northwest Arkansas and is a native of Morrilton. He is challenging Democrat Sen. Blanche Lincoln, Republican John Boozman, and Independent Trevor Drown in the U.S. Senate race.
In our most recent Talk Business Poll, Gray polled at 2% among 793 likely Arkansas voters.
