Opinion: When it comes to candidates for Attorney General in the State of Arkansas, none can rise above or outshine Tim Griffin. To be frank, Tim Griffin will be the Attorney General Arkansas is going to need for the foreseeable future.
Few would argue with the statement, “There is no substitute for experience” and Griffin’s resume is a sounding board of experience. However, he is not only experienced in state law and politics, but he also has a background extending from federal law to Washington D.C. and into the heart of the United States Military.
Starting in 1995 Griffin gained experience working on an investigation into the former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. He served as the Senior Investigative Counsel for the House Committee on Government Reform. In 1999 he was the Deputy Research Direct for the RNC and worked directly with George Bush on the election campaign. In 2005, Griffin worked directly with the White House as a Special Assistant to the President. By 2006, Griffin was appointed to serve as a United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas.
Tim would go on to run for Congress and win. He served two terms before deciding to come home to Arkansas and raise his family. In Arkansas, he has served two terms as the Lieutenant Governor. While serving and working in D.C. and Arkansas, Griffin also managed to serve in the United States Army Reserve where he currently holds the rank of Colonel. Tim served in the Iraq War and earned numerous awards for his service.
Arkansas faces an unprecedented time of potential and outright overreach from the federal government. That overreach has gone into schools, challenged the rights of the Second Amendment, included vaccine mandates, and regulations put in place which directly hurt Arkansas families and workers. We need Griffin to face these challenges.
The Arkansas Attorney General’s office is the largest staffed state office serving the citizens of Arkansas. There are more than 100 attorneys working directly under the Attorney General to ensure the rights and liberties of Arkansas citizens are not violated. There is simply no better person than Tim Griffin to lead this fight. He knows Washington, he knows Congress, he knows the law, and he knows the plight of our veterans. Tim Griffin has the background, the experience, the knowledge, and most importantly the dedication to lead Arkansas as we face these challenging legal times ahead.
When you go to the polls in May and again in November, remember Arkansas is in a fight for the future of your children. The battles in the court systems today will determine the freedoms, the rights, and the future for all of us in Arkansas. The choice can not be any clearer. The only person prepared to fight for us in the next four years is Tim Griffin. Tim’s experience, leadership, and skill will propel us into positions of victory for Arkansas. You must cast your vote for the future of Arkansas and that means you must vote for Tim Griffin as your next Attorney General of Arkansas.
