Asa Hutchinson (R), who is facing a primary challenge on Tuesday.

“I fully endorse Asa for governor!” Trump tweeted.

Hutchinson and four other Republican governors joined Trump at the White House on Monday to discuss border security and ensuring safety in local communities.


Hutchinson is seeking a second four-year term. He is facing a primary challenge from gun-range owner Jan Morgan, who made headlines in 2014 when she declared her business a “Muslim Free Zone.”

Hutchinson is considered a strong favorite for reelection, according to a March poll from Mason-Dixon.

The incumbent received a 65 percent statewide approval rating, according to the poll, which surveyed 625 registered Arkansas voters from March 21-24.

Trump has in recent weeks waded into the midterm election cycle, announcing his support for various Republican candidates either before or after primaries.
