Businessman French Hill to Run for Congress

Hill will seek seat being vacated by Rep. Tim Griffin, who announced last week that he will not run for reelection at the end of his term.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The race for U.S. House of Representatives District 2 now has a Republican candidate.

Businessman French Hill announced Tuesday that he will run for the house seat to be vacated by Rep. Tim Griffin, who announced last week that he will not seek a third term.

Hill issued the following statement in a news release:

“I’m running for Congress because we need more business leaders in Congress - not more career politicians. I grew up in the Second District and live and work here today. Everyday at my business my priorities are helping Arkansas’s entrepreneurs start and grow their own businesses and encouraging families to save and invest. I know first hand the challenges businesses and families in Arkansas face, and in Congress, I will fight every day for policies that spur economic growth and job creation. I will demand greater accountability at every level of the federal government and do away with job-killing policies like ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank. Representing the Second District in Congress would be an honor, and I look forward to working hard to earn the trust and support of Arkansans in the months ahead.”

Democratic candidate and former North Little Rock Mayor Patrick Henry Hays announced his campaign for the same seat last week.
