As you probably know, Conservative Arkansas has endorsed numerous candidates in the upcoming general election. Among those included is what some might consider a more controversial choice for State Representative in District 95, Independent candidate Mark Moore. The only other contender for this race is Republican Sue Scott, who did not participate in our vetting process and neglected to respond to several queries for our questionnaire. We have also confirmed that Candidate Scott has not yet responded to surveys from Arkansas Family Council or the gun rights P.A.C. Arkansas Carry, other respected organizations with whom we share common goals.
On Friday, September 28th, Conservative Arkansas’ board became aware of statements made by an officer of the Republican Men of Benton County during their monthly luncheon earlier that day. Albert Langley, who also works on
Sue Scott’s campaign, left their membership with the strong impression that Conservative Arkansas regretted or was reconsidering its support for Mark Moore, as witnessed by our own vice chairman. While we appreciate Sue Scott’s recent efforts to reach out to us, any willingness to speak with her was strictly a matter of professional courtesy, as it was clearly communicated that a change in our endorsement decision was not open for consideration.
Conservative Arkansas has never reconsidered support for Independent candidate Mark Moore, and in fact has only grown more confident in the decision to endorse him. We encourage the voters of District 95 to get to know both candidates, and we hope that after careful consideration, they’ll cast their votes for Moore for State Representative on November 6th.
