Morgan visits Log Cabin

Morgan visits Log Cabin

Jan Morgan, who is seeking to unseat Gov. Asa Hutchinson and be the Republican gubernatorial candidate in the November general election, sat down with the Log Cabin Democrat to explain the main differences between her and Hutchinson.

“I am a constitutional and fiscally conservation [candidate],” Morgan said.

She said she thinks Hutchinson is an “establishment candidate” who has embraced big government, raised taxes and increased spending.

“People are tired of politics as usual,” Morgan said. “I’m that outsider that can be the voice of the people in this state.”

She said the Republican party is divided after a lackluster run while the party had a majority in the House and Senate as well as a Republican governor and president.

“We can’t blame it on the Democrats,” she said. “We’re going to get the blame or the credit. We don’t want to lose our hold.”

Morgan said she and Hutchinson differ on immigration and taxes. She said she strongly opposes sanctuary cities and sanctuary college campuses, and that she will ensure “the people in this state feel a relief in state income taxes.”

“Somebody has to step in and do something,” she said. “I plan to save this party and this state for the people.”

Early voting in the primary election will be conducted from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 7-11 and May 14-18, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 12 and 19 and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 21 at the Faulkner County Courthouse, Faulkner County Library, McGee Sports Center, Mayflower City Hall, Vilonia First Baptist Church and Greenbrier City Event Center.

Polls will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Election Day, May 22, at 20 vote centers across the county.

Jared K. Henderson and Leticia Sanders are vying for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination.

The winners of the Republican and Democratic nominations will face Libertarian Mark West in the general election in November.

Jan Morgan talks about why she is running for Arkansas Governor

Jan Morgan talks about why she is running for Arkansas Governor

Conservative activist and Candidate for Governor of Arkansas Jan Morgan spoke at an open forum public event at the White County Fairgrounds in Searcy, Arkansas. The current Governor, Asa Hutchinson, has supported leftist positions regarding guns, religious rights, illegal immigration, taxes, government waste, & other issues despite being elected as a Republican.
Jan Morgan owns a gun range in Hot Springs that bans Muslims & has testified at the Arkansas State Legislator in addition to commenting on Fox News.

HB1249, a campus carry bill that would allow guns onto college campuses was weakened even further with SB724 – CONCERNING POSSESSION OF A CONCEALED HANDGUN ON THE PREMISES AND ON THE GROUNDS OF A TEACHING HOSPITAL AND OTHER LOCATIONS; AND CONCERNING THE POSSESSION OF A CONCEALED HANDGUN AT A PRIVATE UNIVERSITY OR PRIVATE COLLEGE.

HB1249 had already been sabotaged by Senator Jeremy Hutchinson advancing the agenda of Governor Asa Hutchinson. An attempt to amend HB1249 by Linda Collins Smith was not allowed by Arkansas Senator Jeremy Hutchinson who chaired the Arkansas Senate Judiciary committee. Another amendment requiring unneeded additional training pushed by Arkansas Senator Trent Garner was instead added to HB1249 in the Senate.
The NRA had backed Linda Collins Smith’s amendment before the blocking and sabotaging of her amendment by Governor Hutchinson. The Trent Garner/Hutchinson amendment requires additional training that financially benefits the police retirement system.
SB724 added even more restrictions regarding sporting events and other places.

Jan Morgan campaigns for governor in Ashdown

Jan Morgan campaigns for governor in Ashdown

Jan Morgan used politics and barbecue served at Big Jake’s Bar-B-Q Thursday to help explain her goal of defeating incumbent Gov. Asa Hutchinson so she can become governor of Arkansas.

Morgan outlined her ideas to improve the state at a meet and greet sponsored by Little River County Patriots.

She said she is a constitutional conservative and that Hutchinson acts like a Democrat instead of a Republican.

Morgan accused Hutchinson of being too liberal and said he is obligated to favor corporate interests instead of being responsive to people.

In campaign material, she used the catch phrase “Stand With Jan” to introduce her policy platform.

An outline of her policy platform follows:

Jobs

Government does not create jobs. People create businesses, and businesses create jobs. Arkansas’ small businesses are the economic engine of our state, not government.

Morgan continues to carry fight to Hutchinson

Morgan continues to carry fight to Hutchinson

With the GOP Primary looming six weeks away and counting, insurgent GOP candidate Jan Morgan continued hopping the state with appearances in Hope and Ashdown on Thursday, and upcoming speeches in nearby Louisville and Texarkana.

With the GOP Primary looming six weeks away and counting, insurgent GOP candidate Jan Morgan continued hopping the state with appearances in Hope and Ashdown on Thursday, and upcoming speeches in nearby Louisville and Texarkana. Morgan has been mounting a primary challenge to incumbent Governor Asa Hutchinson, who is looking to reelected to a second term this fall.

“We are taking the fight to him, traveling all over the state. The people have told me that they want a choice, and on May 22, they have a choice, a clear choice. You couldn’t have two candidates, who are more different,” Morgan said in an interview with the Hope Star during a campaign stop.
With just six weeks, Morgan is looping around the state again, trying to reach every corner once more before May 22. Morgan said she feels good about her chances, even against the incumbent Hutchinson, partially because of Hutchinson himself.

“He has continued to refuse to debate me, to defend his record, and to be held accountable for the last four years. That tells me that he won’t defend his record because he can’t; its indefensible,” she said.
Morgan also said she remains optimistic about the race as she points out that Donald Trump remains very popular in Arkansas, and he carried the state by 72-percent.
“The people I’ve talked to are fed up with politics as usual, business as usual, and the establishment as usual. I am for the people, and this campaign is about people, and I’ve got people from every walk of life supporting this campaign,” she said.

Governor candidate Morgan cites “the people”

Governor candidate Morgan cites “the people”

Running on a platform of representing the people who called for her to run for Arkansas Governor, Republican Candidate Jan Morgan, of Hot Springs, in a visit to Van Buren County Democrat offices, said her platform was policies “of the people.”

“The establishment of both parties have betrayed the people,” she said.

The state’s budget growth of $600 mil reflected this betrayal, she said.

Morgan said she would focus on reducing waste in state government agencies once in office. Reducing waste would result in lower expenditures, in turn allowing a tax break for Arkansas residents who are being “taxed into poverty,” she said.

Morgan’s candidacy is a challenge to incumbent Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, also a Republican.

While often cited for her ownership of a gun range in Hot Springs and a at-times panelist on Fox News, Morgan said she had been an investigative reporter for broadcast for 27 years previous to those roles.

She had been traveling the state since her Dec. 31 candidacy announcement. She had earlier this year spoken to the Van Buren County Republican Party.
