JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

With less than a month left before voters head to the polls to determine the party nominees for Arkansas governor, one of the two Republican candidates for governor said Wednesday that she has enjoyed talking with voters about the issues. 

Jan Morgan, who is challenging incumbent Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson, was in Jonesboro Wednesday night. In her remarks in front of about 100 people, Morgan spoke with economic issues, including the state's tax climate as well as a desire for lower spending. 

Morgan said she has met with voters for some time and has discussed the issues. 

"We spent six months on the road before we ever announced that we were actually going to run, just listening to the needs of the people around this state from all walks of life," Morgan said. 

The winner of the GOP primary will face either Jared Henderson or Leticia Sanders; who are facing off in the Democratic primary, as well as Libertarian candidate Mark West, in the Nov. 6 general election. 

The primary is set for May 22.
