Let’s continue our fight to keep the Natural State the best place in America to live, work, and raise a family.
Senator Jason Rapert is running for AR Lieutenant Governor in 2022
First elected to the Arkansas Senate (District 35) in 2010, Rapert has been popularly re-elected on three occasions – winning in 2012, 2014 and 2018. He is Chairman of the Senate Insurance & Commerce Committee, Joint Chair of the Legislative Joint Auditing Committee and Past President of the National Council of Insurance Legislators.
Driven by Faith & Service
Jason lives his life to serve others. His faith-based humanitarian missions organization Holy Ghost Ministries has provided clean water, emergency food supplies, poverty assistance, financial support and student scholarships to the poor and orphans of Ghana West Africa, Uganda, and the Philippines.
Back home, and throughout his legislative career, Senator Rapert has been recognized with numerous local, state and national awards for his service to the community and in his mission efforts abroad.
A dedicated Christian and lifelong resident of Arkansas, Senator Rapert has been married to his wife Laurie for 30 years. They reside on their family farm on the banks of the Arkansas River just outside of Conway, Arkansas.
Protecting our Values
Jason has been a consistent defender of our shared values in the Arkansas State Senate, from protecting the unborn to defending our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
He believes that all life is sacred, which is why he sponsored the historic and first successful Heartbeat Bill in the entire country. Jason has received the endorsement of Arkansas Right to Life many times and was awarded the “Hero For Life Award” by Faith2Action in Ohio.
Jason, an NRA Life Member with an A+ rating, has always stood up against the liberal machine that wishes to weaken the Second Amendment in our country—and always will.
In addition to his service in the Arkansas State Senate, Jason serves as Founder and President of the National Association of Christian Lawmakers (NACL), which successfully launched this year. With elected officials serving as state chairs in 23 states representing a total U.S. population of 160 million people, the NACL is prepared to do its part to try and save this nation for future generations.
Our nation has strayed too far from our Judeo-Christian foundation and Jason is uniting with lawmakers across the entire country to restore the honor of God in America.
Cutting Taxes for Hardworking Arkansans
In the State Senate, Jason led the charge to cut taxes on groceries, used cars, capital gains, and our state income tax. Given the sacrifices veterans have made for America, Jason made exempting military retirement benefits from state income taxes a personal priority.
When his bill to remove the final remaining discretionary sales tax on groceries took effect on January 1, 2019, it was reported that Arkansas taxpayers would be keeping $65,000,000 dollars more a year in their own pockets to use for their families’ needs.
“I am really proud of that folks. The people who actually work hard and earn the money should get to keep as much of it as possible. We made that happen in Arkansas.” – Sen. Jason Rapert
