ARK GOV COMMENTED ON JAN 6th ATTACKS- When Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson appeared on Arkansas Public Media’s Talk Business and Politics program recently—he touched on several topics ranging from his balanced budget proposal he will submit to the Arkansas General Assembly this week, he also discussed the state's response to surging cases of the omicron variant. But when asked why more Republicans haven’t mentioned President Trump on the January 6th Anniversary of the attack on the Capitol, this is what he had to say.

“President Trump will historically be associated with that. He called people to Washington. Some that were there with supporting Trump or out of curiosity, but whenever that invasion of the Capitol occurred, it crossed every line, and he’s sufficiently associated with it.”                    

Governor Hutchinson, a Republican is the chair of the National Governor’s Association and there has been speculation that he is considering a run for President in 2024.
