AR Democratic Gubernatorial Campaign Ramps Up

UNION COUNTY, AR-- KNWA/FOX24 is your local election headquarters and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Ross is ramping up his campaign, with a tour of a Union County manufacturing plant on Thursday. In the past few years, the plant lost sales due to the 2009 national housing crisis . Now, it's struggling to find skilled labor. After touring the plant, Ross promised if elected in November, he'll improve education and job readiness. "I know how important an industry and jobs are to a local community and I know how much it can devastate a community to lose jobs and so, as governor, I'm going to be creating a business-friendly environment and I'm going to do a better job of letting the world know that Arkansas is open for business," says Ross. Ross is facing Lynette Bryant for the Democratic nomination. The primary election is set for May 20th.
