NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR – On Wednesday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie made campaign stops in Arkansas on behalf of Asa Hutchinson in the governor’s race.
Christie's visit to Lindsey's Hospitality house in North Little Rock comes after private Republican Governors Association events for Hutchinson in the northwest corner of the state. Christie, hit two other closed events in the capital city to close out the day.
Mike Ross, Democratic nominee for governor, sent KARK this statement:
"Congressman Hutchinson is so desperate to distract from cheating on his own taxes that he’s willing to stand side-by-side with a scandal-plagued New Jersey politician as he smears and attacks my wife and me - and does so with false allegations completely debunked by the Arkansas Democrat Gazette and the U.S. House Ethics Committee. Congressman Hutchinson has been running for statewide office for nearly 30 years, but he has never sunk this low to win an election, and I pray he has a change of heart."
