Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel announced plans to run for Arkansas governor in 2014 Wednesday.

He released the following statement:

“Today with the filing of Articles of Incorporation, I began laying the groundwork for a campaign for Governor in 2014.

This initial legal step allows me to begin the process of organizing and financing a gubernatorial bid. A formal announcement of my candidacy will come at a later date, but I expect a hard-fought campaign.

I have the experience and ability to lead our state, confront the issues facing our citizens, and meet the demands of a 21st century economy. I believe Arkansas’ best days are yet to come, and I look forward to sharing my vision in the months ahead.”
