The same man behind Arkansas' strictest anti-abortion law is now reportedly "in prayer" to be the Natural State's next Lieutenant Governor. State Senator Jason Rapert posted on his Facebook page Friday night that his "family will be in prayer about running" for the office of Lt. Governor in Arkansas. Rapert's post is in response to a Facebook group called "draft Jason Rapert for Lt. Governor." Rapert was the sponsor of the 12-week "Fetal Heartbeat Protection Act," which at the time it was passed, was the most restrictive abortion ban in America. You can read Rapert's full statement below.
"I appreciate the confidence you have in me. We began our public service in 2010, giving everything we have to represent our constituents and champion the values, principles and reforms that will make Arkansas one of the best places to live, work and raise a family in our nation. Our family will be in prayer about running for this office and seek direction on what the people of Arkansas would have us to do. Again, thank you for your confidence in me, it is humbling."-- Senator Jason Rapert on run for Arkansas Lt. Governor
