Boehner Supports Ag Committee Seat for Crawford

House Republican Leader John Boehner has pledged his support to secure an assignment on the important House Agriculture Committee for Rick Crawford, GOP nominee for Arkansas' 1st Congressional District.

"Rick Crawford has my full support for a seat on the House Agriculture Committee. Rick's been in the agriculture business for years and understands the challenges facing farmers, ranchers, and rural communities. He would be a strong advocate for solutions that address the issues facing agriculture communities, and I look forward to working with him, the Republican leadership, and the Members of the Steering Committee to place him on the committee at the earliest possible opportunity."

Boehner represents the two largest agriculture counties in Ohio and previously served on the House Agriculture Committee for 15 years.

The economy of Arkansas' 1st Congressional District is driven by agriculture. According to the Office of Rep. Marion Berry, over 90% of the region's jobs are tied to the industry. The district ranks No. 1 in the country for rice production, No. 5 in the country for cotton production, No. 10 in the country for soybean production and No. 11 in the country for overall cropland harvested. Situated along the Mississippi River and encompassing Arkansas' Delta region, the district is home to Jonesboro's Arkansas State University, a major center of agricultural education, and Stuttgart's Riceland Foods, the world's biggest rice miller.

Princella Smith Endorses Rick Crawford for Congress

JONESBORO – Yesterday, First District Congressional candidate, United States Army veteran, and small business owner Rick Crawford announced the endorsement of Princella Smith of Wynne. Smith cited Crawford’s conservative ideals as the basis for her endorsement.

Smith, who also vied for the Republican Congressional nomination this year, got her first cut at politics under former Arkansas Lt. Governor Rockefeller and later worked with Governor Mike Huckabee, U.S. Congressman John Boozman, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and as an aide at the U.S. Department of Labor and on Capitol Hill. She has been a regular political commentator on several national news outlets and serves as a visiting fellow, guest lecturer, and board member for several conservative institutions.

“Rick Crawford understands that Washington cannot continue following the liberal over spending agenda of Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama,” said Smith. “Rick understands the need for job creation and innovation in the First District of Arkansas and will fight for the type of fiscal responsibility that is desperately needed in Congress.”

Smith continued: “Rick’s military background has equipped him with the ability to execute a critical mission under intense pressure, and it has given him an understanding that we must end this administration’s propensity for kicking our allies in the teeth. I look forward to working with Rick as he becomes our next Congressman from the First District of Arkansas.”

“I am grateful and honored to receive this endorsement from Princella,” said Crawford. “Princella has been active the last several years in traveling across our country to champion the conservative principles missing in Washington, and with her help, I want to apply those principles as a check and balance against this out of control spending agenda being led by Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama.”

This is the sixth endorsement by a conservative leader in Arkansas for the Crawford for Congress campaign. Previous endorsements include Governor Mike Huckabee, Congressmen Asa Hutchinson Ed Bethune, Nelda Speaks of Mountain Home, and State Representative Davy Carter of Cabot.
