Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson is paving the way to the White House. While speaking to the Arkansas Bar Association the Governor lamented over his concern for the future of the Republican Party.
The Hill reports:
“I want to be a voice of problem solving in government and not creating chaos, and so that is my mission,” Hutchinson said. “I am doing what is necessary to lay a foundation for 2024, but let me assure you my first priority through the remainder of my term is Arkansas.”
“We are not going to go out into the next role in life quietly,” he said on Wednesday, according to Arkansas Online. “It’s going to be a very active finish to the term, and we got a lot to do. Stay tuned, and hope we can do some good things after my term as governor, and we will see where that leads.”
Gov. Hutchinson hasn’t shied away from discussing his interest in running for President
He made an appearance in New Hampshire in April at “Politics & Eggs,” an event considered a mainstay in the presidential campaign for politicians seeking a possible run.
“Republicans need to do a lot of soul searching as to what is the right thing here and what is the right thing for our democracy in the future,” he told “Fox News Sunday.”
The two-term Arkansas governor is term-limited and will leave the role in January.
Hutchinson has kept former President Trump at arm’s length and said last year he would not support Trump if he runs in 2024 and recently added that Trump’s plans won’t affect Hutchinson’s decision to run.
