Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee announced his endorsement of Beth Anne Rankin in her bid for Congress.
Huckabee endorsed Rankin two years ago when she sought the seat. Rankin, who worked for Huckabee during his gubernatorial administration, is a front-runner for the Fourth District GOP nomination.
“It is a tremendous honor to have the endorsement of Governor Mike Huckabee,” said Rankin. “I am grateful for the experience of having served with one of America’s most respected and trusted conservative leaders, and it is a tremendous honor to have his personal support.”
Rankin faces Republicans Tom Cotton, Marcus Richmond and John Cowart in the GOP primary. Announced Democrats include State Sen. Gene Jeffress (D-Louann) and former U.S. Senate candidate D.C. Morrison.
