A Facebook page has emerged to recruit Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway) to consider a run for Arkansas Lt. Governor.
Current officeholder Lt. Gov. Mark Darr (R) is considering a run for another political office.
Rapert, the lightning rod for pro-choice forces for his work on the “fetal heartbeat” bill, has been hailed by pro-life supporters this legislative session. He has been front-and-center among the state and national media in recent weeks.
Rapert issued this statement on his Senate Facebook page:
“I appreciate the confidence you have in me. We began our public service in 2010, giving everything we have to represent our constituents and champion the values, principles and reforms that will make Arkansas one of the best places to live, work and raise a family in our nation. Our family will be in prayer about running for this office and seek direction on what the people of Arkansas would have us to do. Again, thank you for your confidence in me, it is humbling.”
