Candidacy dropped in District 28 race

Kime, your wife will be in our thoughts and prayers. You made the right decision...

The Truth
BENTON — Kime Eubanks of Benton, who had announced he would run as a Republican for District 28 in the state House of Representatives, said Thursday that he did not file as a candidate for personal reasons. “A few weeks ago we found out that my wife, Tina, has cancer,” Eubanks said in an email. “Although the chances of her recovering fully are good, the treatments and surgery will last into September of this year. All of my attention and energy needs to be focused on my wife and family.” Eubanks announced his intended candidacy in January.

I am happy to report that my wife, Tina has responded very well to her treatments. She had her stomach removed in May but her spirit and attitude are strong, and she is inspiring many. She and I won the 2006 Arkansas Parents of the Year Courage Award. When all is stripped away--hair, stomach, sometimes dignity--what you are truly made of shines through. Tina has shown strength, grace, and a sweet spirit born by her faith in God.
