As returns from the Democratic runoff to pick his challenger trickle in, Congressman Rick Crawford announced Senator Johnny Key of Mountain Home serve as Campaign Chairman of his reelection bid. Warren Dupwe of Jonesboro will serve as Chairman Emeritus of Crawford's campaign team.
“Senator Key will be an asset to Team Crawford,” said Crawford. “In Little Rock, Senator Key has worked to ensure that Arkansans are not saddled with extensive debt and has fought off efforts to implement President Obama's healthcare law in our state. Senator Key is respected across the political spectrum and he will play a major role in moving our common sense conservative message forward.”
will also play an active role in overall campaign activities and strategy.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to work with Congressman Crawford as he continues his fight to implement permanent spending controls to reign in out of control Washington spending and repeal Obamacare” said Key. “In his first term, Congressman Crawford has voted to repeal the trillion-dollar Obamacare entitlement and has consistently called for a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution that will force Washington to stop spending our children and grandchildren further into debt. In 2010, voters in the First District wanted a clean break from the Obama agenda. Congressman Crawford has fought President Obama and the Washington liberals at every turn. I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and doing all that I can to ensure he is reelected in November.”
