by Conner for Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK - Former U.S. Attorney and candidate for the U.S. Senate, Conner Eldridge today is finishing up his Red Truck Road Tour with campaign stops throughout Little Rock. Beginning the morning with interviews on KATV 7 at Community Bakery and KARK 4 at the Capitol Building, Eldridge will be around Central Arkansas throughout the day. Among other stops with the Red Debate Truck during the day, Eldridge will be in Little Rock at Doe's Eat Place campaigning during the lunch hour, as well as stopping by a number of polling places in Central Arkansas, including the Dunbar Recreation Center polling location. Eldridge said he is encouraged by the support his campaign has been receiving in the final days leading up to Election Day

"There's no better feeling than finishing something strong," said Eldridge. "And that's exactly what we're doing here today in Central Arkansas. We're shaking every hand we can, reaching every voter we can and really playing this thing to the whistle," said Eldridge, adding, "That's the type of work ethic and attitude I'd have in the Senate - a results-driven, hardworking approach to getting the job done for Arkansas. I'm proud of what we've accomplished in this campaign and excited for the rest of the day."

The Red Truck Road tour has taken Eldridge all over the state in the final days of the campaign. His tour has included stops in Conway, Russellville, Paris, Fayetteville, Springdale, Bentonville, Jonesboro, Paragould, Hope, Texarkana, Magnolia, Camden, Searcy, Cabot, Little Rock and Jacksonville over the last ten days. Along the way, Eldridge has stopped in at local restaurants, shops, businesses, cafes, factories and more all over the state as he focuses on listening to hardworking Arkansans whose voices routinely go unheard in Washington. During the course of the campaign, Eldridge has made it a priority to travel to all 75 Arkansas counties, visiting most at least twice. Eldridge has committed to traveling to all 75 counties once a year if elected to the U.S. Senate and challenged the other candidates in the race to do the same. Sen. Boozman has refused to do so, preferring to visit Paris, France 9 times on the taxpayer dime instead.

The Eldridge Campaign Election Night Watch Party will be held Tuesday evening at Big Whiskey Bar and Grill in downtown Little Rock beginning at 5 pm.
