Your Local Election

LITTLE ROCK – A fourth name has been thrown into the ring in a bid for the Attorney General spot in 2022.

Lifelong Arkansan and local attorney Jesse Gibson will be running as the second Democrat in the race after the announcement of attorney Jason Davis on May 4.

Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin of Little Rock and former Arkansas Fair Housing Commission Executive Director Leon Jones of Little Rock announced their bids for the Republican nomination within recent months.

Gibson grew up in Lead Hill and has been a practicing attorney for 22 years.

“I come from humble beginnings. Nobody knows my name and that’s a good thing. It means the life I live and the work I do is about our families and our communities, not about a career in power and politics,” Gibson says. “We are all just trying to make a better life for our family, to do the right thing, to live a life of faith and to help our community. We need more real people representing real people.”

He owns his own small business, a local law firm, and lives in Little Rock with his wife, Amanda, and two sons.

“We expect politicians to do the right thing, but too often they end up protecting their own power over ours. I’m done waiting around for someone else to get this right. I’ve taken on the big guys in the courtroom, so I’m ready to do the same in Little Rock as Attorney General,” Gibson said.
