Terry DeWitt, a regional co-chair from Arkadelphia also commented on the former Razorback, saying he is a “conservative outsider and Army veteran who’s running because he recognizes that Washington is broken. He is exactly the type of conservative warrior that we need representing us in the United States Senate because he’ll never back down from fighting for the people of Arkansas.”
