“Our voices will finally be heard. People are tired of politics and business as usual in Washington. For years many just shook their head and went about their business, but Arkansans have grown weary of professional politicians whose major concern is the next election and how they can stay in office. They are looking for straight talk, common sense, and someone who will listen and take their message to Washington,” Cox said after seeing the polling results.
