Quotes

"While many news outlets are reporting on the voter registration and candidacy of Ms. Rutledge, Aaron remains focused on his campaign and his message to Arkansans.  Regardless of who his opponents are, Aaron's message remains the same: that as Attorney General, Aaron will work to protect the individual liberties of Arkansans and limit governmental intrusion into peoples' lives whenever possible.  Therefore, Aaron has not and is not devoting time and resources to researching whether Ms. Rutledge's position on the ballot is legitimate.  Aaron believes that with his message to voters he can defeat his opponents on the merits on Election Day without becoming involved in this current issue."
"He also served on the Law Reform Commission of Western Australia from 2007 to 2011."

"We know a great deal about how to make schools safe in general but very little about the specifics for various settings and populations" said Dr. William J Sabol
