ARK GOV PRIMARY: Last night In the Arkansas  GOP primary for Governor,  incumbent  Asa Hutchinson defeated Jan Morgan, a gun range owner who had challenged him, saying Hutchinson was not a “true conservative”.  Hutchinson touted $150 million in tax cuts he's signed into law, as well as his record on gun rights and anti-abortion measures, and says his 2-1  victory margin  in the Republican primary means voters rejected "negative voices."
