Blytheville Republican Won't Seek AG's Seat

JULY 19, 2005 - Posted at 3:43 p.m. CDT

BLYTHEVILLE, AR - Representative Marvin Childers said today he has decided against a run for state attorney general.

Republicans had been speculating that Childers, who is ineligible for another House position because of term limits, might run for attorney general next year.  Current attorney general Mike Beebe has said he will run for governor.

Childers, of Blytheville, says he will look for other opportunities to serve.

State Representative Dustin McDaniel (D) of Jonesboro recently announced that he will seek his party's nomination for the AG's office.  McDaniel is one of several northeast Arkansas Democrats seeking statewide office next year. 

Others include former state representative Don House of Walnut Ridge, a candidate for state treasurer; and state Senator Tom Wooldridge of Paragould, who will run for Lieutenant Governor.
