The Union County Republican Committee partnered with two of Arkansas' top political groups, LobbyUp and Talk Business, to sponsor the first Republican Fourth Congressional District debate January 9 at the South Arkansas Arts Center in El Dorado.
"Our committee is honored to host the first congressional debate of the 2012 election cycle," said UCRC Chairman Kermit Parks. "The people of South Arkansas are ready to send a conservative Republican to Congress next November."
The debate was moderated by Republican Party of Arkansas Chairman Doyle Webb.
Candidates participating include, Tom Cotton of Dardanelle, Beth Anne Rankin of Magnolia and Marcus Richmond of Harvey.
