Arkansas Democratic Party In Financial Hole

GRAY-MICHAEL JOHN

Reports to the Federal Election Commission show the Arkansas Democratic Party has nearly $80,000 of debt.

Party Chairman Michael John Gray tells the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that contributions are difficult to obtain because the state has changed from overwhelmingly Democrat to overwhelmingly Republican.

Gray has also called a meeting of the party’s state committee for Saturday to discuss allegations of financial reporting errors and questions about his leadership and pay raises to his chief of staff raised by Little Rock attorney and blogger Matthew Campbell.

Gray denies wrongdoing and says he hopes the annual Clinton Dinner later this month, headlined by presidential candidate and former Texas U.S. Representative Beto O’Rourke will raise $150,000 to $250,000 for the party.
