Little Rock native and small business owner Natalie James announced Monday (June 14) she will seek the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate.
Should James secure the nomination, she would likely take on two-term U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., or one of his announced primary opponents – Michael Deel, Heath Loftis or Jan Morgan. Democrat Dan Whitfield has declared he is also seeking the Democratic nomination.
“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,” James said.
