State Senate District three candidates Democrat Jon Comstock and Republican Cecile Bledsoe are doing a last minute push to get voters in Rogers out to the polls.
After sitting down with them, they both said getting out in the community to speak with constituents is what keeps them pushing forward during election season.
“They’re not always in the same schools, or the same churches or the same neighborhoods so you get to venture out and touch people, see who they are. And ask them questions,” said Bledsoe.
“The folks that are helping me with my campaign, they know that one of the things i need to do to kind of clear my head, and to get energized and to stay energized is, give me a couple hours or 3 hours or 4 hours knocking on doors,” said Comstock.
Sunday morning Comstock continued going door to door, asking people for support and to make sure their voices are being heard through voting.
“We had a republican primary that was decided this past may by three votes in this district so what im telling folks when i meet them is, your vote, it could actually make the difference in this election,” said Comstock.
Bledsoe also continues to campaign but says it’s important for her to step back and refresh every week.
“We’re able to hit the ground running on Monday feeling refreshed. And my campaign team, they need time with their families and i’m just so grateful for their help i don’t want to wear them out,” said Bledsoe.
No matter what the outcome come election day, Bledsoe and Comstock said getting into the community can make all the difference.
“I could barely lose, barely win, but if i win it’s going to be because we made that extra effort to get out every single vote that we can,” said Comstock
“It’s a privilege to vote and we want everyone to do that,” said Bledsoe.
Both Comstock and Bledsoe plan to continue hitting the ground running Monday and Tuesday with both door to door campaigns and phone banks
