DNC Statement on Asa Hutchinson’s 2024 Announcement

DNC Chair Jaime Harrison issued the following statement in response to Asa Hutchinson announcing his entrance into the 2024 Republican primary:

“After calling Donald Trump ‘the kind of transparent, straight-talking leader America needs,’ Asa Hutchinson now wants to rewrite history – but his support for Trump and the MAGA agenda speaks for itself. As governor, Hutchinson signed one of the strictest abortion bans in the country, ripped health care away from thousands of Arkansans, and advocated for taking away the ACA’s protections for those with preexisting conditions. He’s just another extremist joining the ever-expanding race for the MAGA base.”
