Rep. Harris Leading Gingrich Effort in Arkansas

According to NWA Online, Arkansas state representative Justin Harris (R-West Fork) is now heading up the effort for GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich in the state, serving as chairman.

As I reported last month, Harris was previously one of the 19 Arkansas legislators to ask Rick Perry to join the presidential race, but withdrew support from Perry last month after the Texas governor’s statements about immigration.

Harris tells NWA Online that he believes Gingrich knows how to fix things and has the ability to bring the country together.

To my knowledge, he is the first state legislator in Arkansas to publicly endorse Gingrich.
