UNITED STATE SENATORS & REPRESENTATIVE CANDIDATES
U.S. REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT 03
I believe that you deserve a voice in Washington DC. And you deserve the respect of our elected leaders. But those leaders value their corporate donors more than voters, which is why DC has become such a swamp and many Arkansas voters feel so frustrated by politics.
I decided to enter this race for Congress because you matter more to me than the party establishment and special interest groups. I will be YOUR representative in DC and will make sure that YOU have a voice.
I’m not a career politician. I’m a regular guy who believes we need to do something big to change the direction of our country. I’m a pastor; my wife and I started a church in Fayetteville 12 years ago. Plus, I work a full-time job. With four kids and bills to pay, I know the kinds of anxieties and aspirations Arkansans feel every day. That’s why I’ll fight to make sure that the laws we pass benefit the most Americans possible, not just the elite few.
You have more power than you can imagine to change things. You don’t have to wait for someone else to do it; you can drain the swamp, starting right here in our state.
On May 22, vote for me in the Republican primary, Robb Ryerse for Congress. Have confidence that our government is working for you. Have confidence that you have a voice in Washington DC.

JOHN THURSTON, COMMISSIONER OF STATE LANDS
SECRETARY OF STATE
Arkansas Commissioner of State Lands, John Thurston was first elected in November of 2010 and is currently serving his second, and final, term in office. This past fall, John announced his candidacy for Secretary of State and has been hot on the campaign trail ever since! In his role as Land Commissioner, John served as chairman of the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council and was nominated as president of the Western State Land Commissioners Association where he served with Texas State Land Commissioner, George P. Bush.
John believes he will bring a wealth of knowledge from the Land Commissioner’s office to the office of Secretary of State. Like the State Land Commissioner’s office, the Secretary of State is an administrative constitutional office, not a legislative office, and its primary function is to carry out the duties assigned to it by the people of Arkansas. John is excited about the future of the Secretary of State’s office in continuing to build its business services division, trimming and keeping a conservative budget, obtaining more voting machines, and re-drawing fair and thoughtful lines when it comes time for re-districting in 2021.
John is an Arkansas native, attended Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, and graduated from Agape College in Little Rock with diploma in Biblical Studies. He was a Certified Religious Assistant in the Arkansas state prison system and has served 13 years on the staff at the Agape Church in West Little Rock.
John still resides in Saline County with his wife, Joanna, and their five children. He is also an avid outdoorsman!
