JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Lieutenant Governor Tim Griffin has decided not to run for Arkansas’s top job.
In a Monday morning news release, Griffin said he would leave the governor’s race, saying he “can do more for Arkansas in a different capacity.”
Griffin announced instead he would campaign for attorney general of Arkansas.
" As a former U.S. Attorney and an Army JAG officer for the past 25 years, I have prosecuted those who have broken our laws,” Griffin said. “I fought the Obama-Biden agenda as a member of Congress, and I’ll fight to stop the Biden-Harris administration’s infringement on the rights of Arkansans.”
