Conner Eldridge makes U.S. Senate campaign announcement

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) - Former prosecutor and U.S. Attorney Conner Eldridge launched his campaign for the U.S. Senate Saturday at his family business in Augusta.

Job creation, education, and national debt are just a few of the issues Eldridge said he will prioritize as senator.

"These problems have real consequences that I've seen growing up here in Augusta, attending the public school just down the road, working on the farm in Lonoke, working with businesses to invest in growing the local economies of Arkadelphia and communities across the southwest and central areas of the state and for the past four and a half years, working with law enforcement and leaders across the state to make Arkansas a safer place to live," Eldridge said.

Eldridge grew up in Augusta and Lonoke and earned his law degree from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.
