Press Release

MCNEIL — On Tuesday, Republican State Senator Charles Beckham announced his campaign for re-election for State Senate in District 3. The district includes all of Clark, Columbia, Lafayette, and Nevada counties and portions of Hempstead, Hot Spring, and Pike counties.

“I am excited to announce my campaign for re-election in 2022. When I first announced for State Senate over two years ago I promised to be a Senator in Little Rock that would fight for limited government, less regulations on Arkansas businesses, lowering our tax burden, and advancing our shared Christian conservative values. I have kept ALL of those promises,” said Senator Beckham.

“My record as your Republican State Senator is one that is 100% Pro-life, I have opposed any encroachment on the Second Amendment, protected our religious liberties, defended Arkansas family values, and fought against the federal overreach and mandates of the Biden administration,” said Senator Beckham. “It has been an honor to serve the people of South Arkansas and as your State Senator I will continue to keep my promises and ask for your support and vote again in 2022.”

During the 2021 legislative session, Senator Beckham led the way on several common sense conservative laws and initiatives. Here are a few:

✓      Lead sponsor of pro-life legislation, such as Act 949, that prohibits abortions in hospitals and strengthens the licensing requirements of abortion facilities AND Act 609, a new law that creates felony offenses for fraud and abuse in fertility treatments. 

✓      Secured over $11 million in broadband funding for South Arkansas.

✓      Co-sponsored the largest tax cut in the history of Arkansas.

✓      Co-sponsored election integrity laws — safeguarding Arkansas voting laws from fraud and abuse (Acts 727, 729, and 952).
