Drew Griffin Withdraws From Race

Drew is a great guy and has a very bright future in the political arena and we wish him the best. Even though he was criticized frequently for his age, Drew stayed the course and showed strong leadership and outstanding character in the midst of attack. Great job and keep up the good work for the GOP, Drew.

The Truth

In a news article today Drew Griffin, Republican running for House District 93 announced his withdrawal from the race due to residency issues. He stated:

“ 'It has been brought to my attention that due to a technicality, I believe that I have not met the residency requirements needed to seek the office of state representative,' Griffin said in the release.

'While I have lived [in ] Springdale my whole life and have lived in my district since last year, I have been made aware that my actions fall short of those necessary to run...' "

The article went on to say that:

"Griffin declined to endorse either candidate but said he is committed to increasing the GOP voter base and helping 'other Republican candidates who believe in our issues.'

State Rep. Doug Matayo, R - Springdale, is vacating the seat so he can run for lieutenant governor.

Griffin plans to seek office another time and is considering a run for Springdale City Council.

'There is a need for conservative leadership in our state and conservative representation here at home,' he said"

shame to see him go, but he'll be back I bet
