Originally I supported Tea Party activist Glenn Gallas in the Republican primary. Miss Rankin once worked on the staff of Mike Huckabee. This is why I didn't support her in the beginning. In my opinion Huckabee is not true conservative. However when Gallas was defeated I threw my support to Miss Rankin. She is still more conservative than Congressman Mike Ross.
Since Miss Rankin is a former Miss Arkansas, she does have name recognition. In Arkansas this is always a plus. I was also happy to see that Gallas was a good sport and endorsed her candidacy. The Republican party in Arkansas’ fourth district in united. Sadly this is not the same story in many parts of the country,
Below is a video of Miss Rankin’s victory speech.
