Ross Files For Governor, Hits Hutchinson on 'Private Option'

Ross voted for a House version of the health care overhaul in committee in 2009, but voted against the measure that President Barack Obama signed into law. Ross also later joined with Republicans to vote for repealing the federal health care overhaul.

Other candidates filing Wednesday included state Rep. Debra Hobbs, who dropped out of the governor's race to seek the GOP nomination for lieutenant governor. State Rep. Duncan Baird, R-Lowell, and Democratic hopeful Karen Sealy Garcia, a Hot Springs City director, filed to run for state treasurer.

Hot Springs businessman Tommy Moll filed to run for south Arkansas' 4th Congressional District and Republican state Rep. Andrea Lea filed to run for state auditor.

The weeklong filing period for state and federal office in Arkansas ends at noon March 3.
