State Rep. Andy Mayberry (R-Hensley) announced Friday (Aug. 23) that he would run for Arkansas Lt. Governor.
Mayberry joins Republican Rep. Charlie Collins (R-Fayetteville) and Democrat John Burkhalter in the race.
Current Lt. Governor Mark Darr (R) is seeking the Fourth District Congressional seat.
In his second term in the legislature, Mayberry was successful in passing a law that would limit most abortions after 20 weeks. Gov. Mike Beebe (D) vetoed the bill, but a Republican-controlled legislature overrode the veto.
Mayberry’s wife, Julie, also announced that she would seek his House seat.
The couple are owners of Mayberry Advertising agency and The East Ender newspaper.
Andy Mayberry, a native of Sheridan, earned a B.A. in journalism from Henderson State University.
