NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Former North Little Rock Mayor Patrick Henry Hays (D) has officially announced his candidacy to represent Arkansas' Second Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The former mayor made the announcement Tuesday afternoon at the Hays Senior Center in North Little Rock.

Hays is the first candidate to announce his campaign for the second congressional district, as current Rep. Tim Griffin announced Monday that he would not be seeking a third term.
