Dems praise Ross’ service; GOP pledges to find ‘true conservative’ candidate

The Arkansas Democratic Party says there is an abundance of potential candidates for the U.S. House seat being given up by Congressman Mike Ross, reports the AP. 

Ross, a Democrat, said Monday he would not seek re-election, but would serve out the remainder of his term. Ross has his eye on a possible run for governor in 2014.

State Democratic Chairman Will Bond says Ross’ early announcement gives the party plenty of time to field a strong candidate.

State Republican Chairman Doyle Webb issued a statement saying the GOP would try to get a “true conservative” elected to the seat next year.

Ross was first elected in 2000 and is in his sixth term.
