"I have a positive vision for the future of this state, and it's about education, job creation and lower fairer taxes," Ross said.

Ross wasn't expected to have a primary challenger, then Bryant filed to run in the final days of the qualifying period for state office. Bryant, 57, has run unsuccessfully for the Little Rock city board and the state House. Bryant has said she wanted to run because she didn't believe it was right for voters to not have a choice in the primary. The governor's race is the only contested statewide primary for Democrats.

"I want the people to decide, and that is why I'm here," Bryant said.
