From Republican Linda Bisbee of Rogers, who is running for the District 95 House seat, in response to opponent Duncan Baird's heated criticism of lobbyist gift-giving to lawmakers:

“I do not believe that’s an issue,” she said. “I think that sometimes a lobbyist will take a legislator out to get their point across and to get time to visit with them, but as far as far as influencing votes, I don’t think that happens.”
