LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson will visit El Dorado on Monday afternoon as part of a statewide campaign in support of Issue 1, a measure on November's ballot to make permanent a transportation sales tax.

In addition to El Dorado, the tour will make stops in Jonesboro, Harrison, Rogers and North Little Rock.

The El Dorado stop is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. at the Murphy Arts District Amphitheater, 105 E. Locust Drive.
