JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The Green Party candidate for U.S. Senate, Mark Swaney, wants to tell voters why he is running for office.
Swaney said he has a number of issues that differ from his Democratic and Republican opponents. He is up against Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tom Cotton and Incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Pryor.
Swaney said one of the most important issues on his platform is climate change. He would implement a tax on carbon to encourage people not to use it. Swaney wants the country to focus on alternatives that would not pollute the atmosphere.
Swaney said he will also fight to make things better for the working class.
