Bush Stumps for Hutchinson in Northwest Arkansas Event

NOVEMBER 7, 2006 - Posted at 7:59 a.m. CST

 

HIGHFILL, Ark. (AP) _ A visit by President Bush has capped this year's campaign season in Arkansas. The president traveled to northwestern Arkansas yesterday to campaign for Asa Hutchinson, a former congressman and Bush administration official running for governor. In the appearance at the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport, Bush said Arkansas Republicans had a duty to tell other voters that, if they want a good governor, they should vote for Hutchinson.

Hutchinson faces Democrat Mike Beebe in today's general election. Former president Bill Clinton campaigned for Beebe last week in Jonesboro.

At the end of his speech yesterday in a hangar at the Highfill airport, Bush held a ``Razorback'' hat aloft while standing next to Hutchinson, then shook hands with veterans who were on the stage behind him during his presentation.

Hutchinson served in Congress from northwestern Arkansas and also was the head of the Drug Enforcement administration and an undersecretary in the Department of Homeland Security.
