MEET ASA HUTCHINSON

Governor Asa Hutchinson is a Republican candidate for President of the United States. He

served as the 46th Governor of the State of Arkansas and in his last election, he was re-

elected with 65 percent of the vote, having received more votes than any other Republican

candidate for governor in the State’s history.

Asa Hutchinson’s time as governor is distinguished by his success in securing over $700

million per year in tax cuts, safeguarding the retirement pay of veterans from state income

tax, shrinking the size of state government, creating over 100,000 new jobs and leading a

national initiative to increase computer science education.

The Governor’s career in public service began when President Ronald Reagan appointed

him as the youngest U.S. Attorney in the nation for the Western District of Arkansas. In

1996, he won the first of three consecutive terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.

During his third term in Congress, President George W. Bush appointed Governor

Hutchinson to serve as Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration and later as

the nation’s first Undersecretary of Homeland Security for Border Protection.

Governor Hutchinson’s experience and wealth of knowledge established him as a national

resource especially in the areas of trade, energy, and national security. As President, Asa

will use his experience to secure our borders, grow our economy, and increase America’s

energy production.

January 10, 2023, marked the end of Governor Hutchinson’s second term. He is a former

Chairman of the National Governors Association; Co-Chairman of the Council of Governors;

and Chairman of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC), Southern States

Energy Board (SSEB), and the Southern Regional Education Board.

Governor Hutchinson grew up on a small farm near Gravette. He is a graduate of Bob Jones

University and the University of Arkansas School of Law. He and his wife, Susan, have been

married for 49 years, and have four children and seven grandchildren. Firm in his faith and

practice, and spurred by his love of country, Governor Hutchinson looks forward to sharing

his vision of consistent conservative leadership for all Americans.
