Mike Beebe in these areas and build upon them. He also said he will fight the divisiveness currently in the Arkansas Legislature, saying it has no place here. Ross was accompanied by his wife, Holly. His parents, Gene and Frances Ross were also on hand for the announcement. Ross said as governor he will work to fill empty industrial parks across the state and be the best economic ambassador the state has had.
