Washington, D.C. – Today Susan B. Anthony List’s Candidate Fund PAC announced its endorsement of Tim Griffin for attorney general of Arkansas.
“Tim Griffin is unapologetically pro-life and we’re proud to endorse him to be Arkansas’ next attorney general,” said Hon. Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s vice president of government affairs. “A longtime public servant, Griffin is well prepared to fight the extreme pro-abortion agenda of Democrats in Washington at a pivotal time for life in America. During his time in Congress he championed legislation to protect unborn babies from cruel late-term abortions and to stop taxpayer funding of abortion. Arkansans have worked hard to enact strong protections for unborn children and mothers and the role of the attorney general in defending those laws is vital. Tim will be an outstanding attorney general and we encourage all pro-life Arkansans to support him on May 24.”
Griffin is Arkansas’ 20th lieutenant governor, a position he has held since 2015. He is a colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve, JAG Corps, having served for more than 25 years and received numerous awards. He was a special assistant and deputy director of public affairs to President George W. Bush before his appointment as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas. He then represented Arkansas’ 2nd Congressional District from 2011-2015, maintaining a 100% pro-life voting record.
Griffin continues to serve in the Army and is a commander at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. He serves on the board of Pathway to Freedom, a faith-based prison ministry, and previously served on the board of Our House, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas, and the Florence Crittenton Home. He and his wife Elizabeth live in Little Rock with their three children, Mary Katherine, John and Charlotte Anne. They are members of Immanuel Baptist Church.
