Three governors landed at the Walnut Ridge Regional Airport late Thursday night. They were en route to a 'get out the vote' rally for Republican gubernatorial candidate Asa Hutchinson in Jonesboro on Friday morning.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and Indiana Governor Mike Pence arrived in Walnut Ridge aboard a Gulfstream 450 Business Jet. Airport Manager Michelle Anthony and the airport staff were busy late into the night Thursday making preparations for their arrival.

Anthony and her staff were back at work early Friday morning to prepare and load the plane with food and beverages for the governors' return flight.

Airport Commission Chairman Dan Coker said the governors thanked Anthony and her staff for making their arrival a pleasant one and commented, "You have a beautiful airport."
