Rutledge Congratulates Arkansas’s U.S. Congressmen on Re-Election

LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge released the following statement congratulating Congressman French Hill (AR-02) and his Arkansas colleagues in the U.S. House, Reps. Crawford, Womack and Westerman:

“The people of Arkansas’s Second Congressional District are fortunate to have my friend, French Hill, representing them in the U.S. House for another two years. Since being elected in 2014, Congressman Hill has worked hard to get our economy back on track by supporting pro-growth tax cuts and reducing the regulatory burden on job creators. Unemployment is now at an astonishing 3.7 percent, and the American economy is showing no sign of slowing down. I am proud to say that Congressman Hill represents me in Washington, and I congratulate him on his well-deserved win this evening.

“I am thrilled that Congressman Hill is rejoining his Arkansas colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives, all of whom were re-elected in tonight’s Republican sweep. I grew up on a cattle farm in the First Congressional District, attended college in the Third Congressional District, and have close family in the Fourth Congressional District. Representatives Rick Crawford, Steve Womack and Bruce Westerman are exactly the leaders we need to keep our economy moving forward and Arkansas values at the forefront in our nation’s capital.”
