Congressman Marion Berry says he will announce his endorsement of Chad Causey, his former chief of staff, on Wednesday, March 31. The two politicians will also make four stops in the district on that day to tout the endorsement.

Causey is seeking the Democratic nomination for the 1st District Congressional seat from which Berry is retiring.

“Chad was a great public servant for the First District, and will make a great Congressman. He has my vote,” said Berry. “For nine years, Chad worked closely with constituents from all 26 counties helping them navigate the federal government and find solutions to their problems. He helped me work on two Farm Bills and to get new programs started at our local colleges that help train workers and get them back to work.”

“I am honored to earn the Congressman’s endorsement,” said Causey. “No one knows the people of this district better and no one has helped them in Congress more than Marion Berry has.”

The pair will make stops in Stuttgart, Lonoke, West Memphis and Jonesboro. Berry has been working behind-the-scenes and publicly to help Causey raise money. His endorsement does not come as a huge surprise.

Other Democrats seeking the House seat include David Cook, Ben Ponder, Steve Bryles, Tim Wooldridge and Terry Green.
