"It is with great excitement and passion for the people of my district that I announce my intentions to seek another term in the State House." said Bentley. "When I was first elected, I promised the voters of my district that I would be a conservative voice for them at the State Capitol. I have consistently stood for traditional family values and am proud of my 100% pro-life voting record, and I am equally proud to continue passing legislation that pushes back against the socialist liberal agenda." 


"Now more than ever, the people of Arkansas need our elected officials to fight for our God-given individual rights. The government continues to overreach their authority and as your state representative I will continue fighting our liberties. It has been an honor to serve the people of my district in the State House and I humbly ask for the people's support and vote in 2022, said Bentley.
