Talk Business + Politics: Rep. Jack Ladyman draws early opponent in Democrat David McAvoy

The Arkansas legislative session isn’t over and at least one incumbent state representative has already drawn an opponent for the 2024 election cycle if he chooses to run again.

Jonesboro resident David McAvoy, a Democrat, launched his campaign Tuesday (April 4) for the Arkansas House District 32 seat that has been held by incumbent Rep. Jack Ladyman, R-Jonesboro, since 2015.

McAvoy said he thinks the district is competitive.

“We can build a brighter future for Arkansas workers, families, and students. This campaign will be focused on the issues that matter such as protecting our public schools, fixing our broken economy, and fighting corruption in our government. Together, we can bring hope back to Arkansas,” he said.

McAvoy cited Ladyman’s support for the LEARNS Act as one issue he would differ with Ladyman.

Incumbent Jack Ladyman has served five terms in the legislature.
