David Sterling endorses Leslie Rutledge for Attorney General
David Sterling today announced his endorsement of Leslie Rutledge in the race for Arkansas Attorney General. Sterling said his endorsement reflects his belief that Rutledge is the only candidate who will fight against federal overreach.
“Leslie Rutledge is the one candidate for Attorney General who will stand up to the Obama Administration and push back against an overreaching government in Washington. I’m supporting Leslie because she will fight to restore the proper balance between the federal government and the states,” Sterling remarked. He added that Rutledge’s support for the Second Amendment, the right to life, and traditional marriage were other factors in his decision to support her candidacy.
Sterling announced his endorsement of Rutledge less than one week after she won the GOP nomination in a runoff election with Sterling. He also encouraged his supporters to vote for Rutledge in the November general election.
