Arkansas gubernatorial candidate Francis “Doc” Washburn believes he’s a “true conservative” alternative to Sarah Huckabee Sanders in the Republican primary.

“If you want to continue big government and high taxes, you vote for Sarah,” Washburn said Monday at a lunch-time campaign stop at The Apaches Grill in Searcy. “If you want somebody that wants to vastly cut the size and scope of government and get them off your back and out of you wallet, vote for me. I think it’s a pretty stark distinction.”
