No surprise here: Gov. Beebe endorses Ross

A special press conference on the steps of the state capitol building yielded no surprises as Governor Mike Beebe endorsed Democrat Mike Ross in the race to become governor.

Though Governor Beebe typically does not endorse candidates until after a primary, former Congressman Mike Ross is the only remaining Democrat in the race after former Lt. Governor Bill Halter decided to drop out last month.

The three candidates seeking the Republican Party nomination are former Congressman Asa Hutchinson, State Representative Debra Hobbs and Curtis Coleman.
