Rep. Charlie Collins to Run for Lt. Governor
Earlier this morning, VoteCharlieCollins.com went live with a new look. The re-launching of the site with a new title — “Charlie Collins, Lieutenant Governor” — led me to believe Rep. Charlie Collins may be, in fact, running for Lieutenant Governor. But of course the first axiom of journalism is “If your mother says she loves you, check it out.” So I contacted Collins and he confirmed that he is announcing his candidacy for LG today.
Collins said his announcement will come through a press release rather than a large campaign-style event. We will update this post later in the day once we receive the release.
Collins is currently serving his second term in the Arkansas House. He represents the Fayetteville area.
