Little Rock, AR — Little Rock, Arkansas native small business owner, and community advocate Natalie James will be announcing her candidacy for the Democratic nomination for United States Senate on Monday, June 14, 2021, at 11:00 am. Natalie will kick off at Nexus Coffee & Creative located in Downtown Little Rock in the RiverMarket at 301 President Clinton Avenue, Suite AB, Little Rock, AR 72201.
James announces with the endorsement of democratic state legislators Jay Richardson of Fort Smith and Denise Ennett of Little Rock. In attendance and speaking at the little rock announcement will be State Representative Vivian Flowers of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, and Attorney and Little Rock Reverend Evelyn Moorehead.
“Today, as a mother, a small business owner, and as an Arkansan who believes we deserve better, I’m announcing my candidacy for the Democratic nomination to be Arkansas’ next United States Senator. I launch this campaign to restore the promise of the American Dream to all Arkansans and all Americans”, Natalie James said.
Natalie James said, “We have faced turbulent times, and we have overcome them, not by drowning out our neighbors or closing off our hearts, ears, & mind. But by realizing that having our differences in opinion does not mean we can not find common ground to get things done and make progress for all.
I refuse to believe that Arkansas isn’t worth fighting for, and I refuse to believe that we ought to sit on the sidelines and wait for another political cycle.”
James will kick off her campaign with a nine-city tour across Arkansas. A tentative schedule of the kick-off tour is below:
