Ross campaigning to "political animals"

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Arkansas Gubernatorial Candidate Mike Ross is hoping a few political animals will help send him to the Governor's Mansion in Little Rock.

He spoke Friday at the Northeast Arkansas Political Animals meeting at the Jonesboro Chamber of Commerce.

Ross told the group if he's elected to office, there's one thing in particular he'd like to tackle first. "Jobs and really start with education. We've got to make sure that we're making smart investments in early childhood education and STEM education and getting our young people college ready or career ready."

Ross says if elected into office he hopes to build on the foundation Governor Beebe has put in place.
