“I have deep Arkansas roots, strong conservative values and a record to prove it. In Congress, I will fight for balanced budgets, lower taxes, the right to life, traditional marriage, and strong national defense.”
“We have already received a humbling outpouring of support from people all across the district. I look forward to meeting as many Third District voters as possible and sharing our vision for reform in Washington and a strong America,” Womack said.
