Griffin Statement on David Meeks Announcement

LITTLE ROCK – Second District Congressional candidate, U.S. Army Reservist and former U.S. Attorney Tim Griffin today issued the following statement after the announcement by David Meeks that he will not seek the Republican nomination for the Second Congressional District and instead enter the race for Arkansas House District 46:

“I salute David Meeks for his positive campaign and desire to elect a representative with common sense conservative values to Congress. I am pleased that David will continue to speak out on issues important to Arkansans as he runs for the state House of Representatives. I wish him the best and look forward to supporting him in his run for District 46.

As conservatives in Arkansas, we are part of a team which must work together to elect representatives who are working for us, not against us. David Meeks will be someone who will work for the people of District 46, and I look forward to working with him on real solutions for sustainable job growth, controlling government spending and reducing the role of government in our lives.”
