CONSERVATIVE STATE SENATOR JOHN COOPER ENDORSES REPRESENTATIVE TERRY RICE FOR STATE SENATE

LITTLE ROCK – On Monday, State Representative Terry Rice received another endorsement from conservative lawmaker John Cooper from Jonesboro.

Senator John Cooper issued the following statement:

“Just a few short months ago, I put my name on the ballot to compete for an open Senate seat in Northeast Arkansas because I had conviction that our conservative values needed representation in the State Senate.  After two hard-fought primary elections, a general election and being vastly outspent, I was elected.

I was elected because conservatives stood firm and supported the conservative candidate.  Today, I proudly stand with my good friend Representative Terry Rice and endorse him in the Republican Primary for Arkansas State Senate District 9.

Terry and I stood together in the fiscal session and voted against the implementation of Obama-care when the entire establishment encouraged us to support it.  We stood up and held true to our convictions.  After a few short months serving in the State Senate, I know that body needs Terry Rice and his mature, principled leadership.  I’m proud to support him, and I hope you will too.”
