Suspending his campaign for Arkansas’ Fourth Congressional District, former candidate Marcus Richmond endorsed Tom Cotton on Wednesday to replace outgoing U.S. Rep. Mike Ross.

According to a release from the Cotton for Congress campaign, Richmond said he believed Cotton to be the clear choice for a conservative voice in Washington D.C.

“As I’ve come to know the other candidates over the last several months it has become apparent Tom is ready to be a conservative leader in Washington,” Richmond said. “He is the clear choice in this race if we expect someone to help change the way DC works. I have appreciated all the support and friends I’ve made during this campaign, and I encourage everyone to join me in supporting Tom Cotton.”

Richmond’s endorsement follows those of Club for Growth PAC and the Conservative Victory Fund for the Cotton campaign in the last eight days, according to the release.
