U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., urged fellow Republicans to continue their support during a special event in Van Buren on Monday.

The Republican Party of Crawford County and the River Valley Victory Center hosted a GOTV Rally and Lunch at the party's Crawford County headquarters at 620 Main St. in Van Buren on Monday. During the event, which began at 11:45 a.m., hot dogs, chips, soda and other refreshments were served free of charge as Boozman thanked those present for their persistent dedication and support in the time leading up to today's election.

"... I know all of you all have worked so hard," Boozman said. "... We've had our game plan in place now. We've been executing that. We've got the big game that's going on really right now in the sense of early voting and all that's going on, but we do have to continue to do those little things. We have to make the calls. We have to do what it takes to win tomorrow, and because of your hard work, not just tomorrow but in the past, we're going to be in very, very good shape."

The senator also discussed the importance of the Republican Party maintaining its majority in the U.S. Senate, as well as a Republican being elected president.
