Podcast: Gov. Asa Hutchinson's Only Challenger

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- It's October, and so far, Gov. Asa Hutchinson only has one official challenger. 

That challenger is Mark West, a Libertarian candidate from Batesville. 

He spoke with KNWA/KFTA about his candidacy and how he differs from Hutchinson. 

Some of his key platforms include pushing to repeal the state's Medicaid expansion (known as Arkansas Works) and expanding firearm rights for Arkansas gun owners. 

The Democratic Party of Arkansas still hasn't put forth a candidate for governor, and there are only rumors of another Republican that might challenge Hutchinson. West said he intends to use these facts to his advantage and generate as much buzz as possible before more candidates emerge. 

The Libertarian Party of Benton County has appeared on the Inside Arkansas Politics podcast before. To listen to it, click here
