LITTLE ROCK Ark.; (KTHV)--Former Governor Mike Huckabee pays a visit to the Natural State, to make his case to voters before the big day. Republicans gathered in the River Market Saturday afternoon for a pre-election rally.
A band performed, while guests ate chili, all there to hear former Governor Mike Huckabee speak. This Political TV commentary led "In the Red Zone," an event geared to support the state's Republican Party. "It's good to see Republicans gather together on the eve of election. There's an excitement that I see on the national level, everywhere I've been traveling lately and I see it at the state level, because never before has Arkansas been poised to have a Republican Speaker and a Republican Senate President." Huckabee adds he's confident Arkansans will vote Republican. "Arkansas is a state that is safely going to go Republican at the presidential level, you have states out there that I've been to a lot lately that aren't so sure and that's where the action is because quite frankly the presidential race is going to be decided by about 10 percent of the voters in 7 or 8 states."
Both parties are campaigning to voters as Election Day nears. Candice Martin with the Democratic Party of Arkansas says their headquarters are reminding voters of the work done by our democratic governor Mike Beebe. "We are making great progress in the state of Arkansas, as opposed to what other people are seeing throughout the country. It's been because of the leadership of Governor Beebe and those who have worked with him to continue our progress."
Martin says their team is hitting the ground to support the state's Democratic candidates. "We are knocking on doors, making phone calls, letting people know about what's at stake at this election and that absolutely is jobs, education, our balanced budget and continuing tax cuts."
