GOP Frontrunners Busy in the Ozarks

Ozarks Politics
Make It Count

BENTONVILLE, Ark. — The top three hoping to get the Republican nod for the November election made stops in the Ozarks trying to sway Natural State voters before Super Tuesday.

“If we stand together we’re going to win, and we’re going to turn this country around,” said Sen. Ted Cruz.

Just a day earlier, Trump told reporters, “We want to win Arkansas, we’re up in Arkansas according to most of the polls,  and we’d like to win it.”

Texas Senator Ted Cruz attended Sunday morning service at Cross Church in Springdale.

“I will not compromise and give away your religious liberty. I will not compromise and give away your second amendment right,” said Cruz.

While Cruz sang church hymnals, Rubio and Trump continued trading jabs.

“Some of you have friends out there that have thought about voting for him, that are thinking about voting for him. Friends don’t let friends vote for con artists,” Rubio told supporters.

“Rubio’s won nothing. He couldn’t get elected dogcatcher in Florida. They hate him in the state of Florida,” explained to a crowd of about 8,500 in Bentonville.

In Trump fashion, he and Chris Christie spoke Saturday morning at the regional airport in Bentonville.

“I actually thought Ted Cruz was a liar but Rubio is worse.”

Later on Saturday, Rubio spoke at Immanuel Baptist Church with Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchison by his side.

“I have lived paycheck to paycheck. I’ve grown up living paycheck to paycheck and we will take conservatism to people living paycheck to paycheck.”

With Super Tuesday just days away, all three competing for votes had this in common.

“As president, we will repeal every word of Obamacare,” said Cruz.

“We’re going to repeal and replace the horror known as Obamacare, it is a horror,” explained Trump.

“I’m a conservative, you should be a conservative. It is right for you and it is right for America,” said Rubio.
