Gov. Hutchinson Issues Statement on Passing of Former Arkansas Governor and U.S. Sen. Dale Bumpers
LITTLE ROCK – Governor Asa Hutchinson issued the following statement on the passing of former Governor and United State Senator Dale Bumpers:
“The entire state mourns the loss of an Arkansas legend. In my first statewide race, Dale took me to school on Arkansas politics. He was a master storyteller, and his stump speaking was impossible to beat. From that first campaign in which we were competitors to the time we served together in Congress, I have admired Dale for his skill, heartfelt convictions and his sense of humor. After he retired, he continued to set an example of civic responsibility and good will during a time of increased partisanship in our nation. We will all miss Dale."
