Todd Turner and Jason Willett, both former Arkansas Democratic Party chairs, have signed a mailer endorsing Scott Ellington in the Democratic primary for 1st District Congress and urging contributions to the Jonesboro prosecutor's campaign. He faces state Rep. Clark Hall of Marvell and ASU prof Gary Latanich of Jonesboro for the right to challenge incumbent Republican Rep. Rick Crawford. Said their letter:
Scott is the only Democrat who can win in November. He has not shied away from tough cases, his record shows he has the courage to take on any issue or person in power who takes advantage of others.
