4th District candidates meet on Channel 4

Posted By on Mon, Jun 11, 2012 at 10:30 AM

ON CHANNEL 4: Jeffress, Hurst and Dean.
  • ON CHANNEL 4: Jeffress, Hurst and Dean.
4th District Democratic congressional candidates Sen. Gene Jeffress and Q. Byrum Hurst will debate during the noon hour today on Channel 4. Jessica Dean will moderate.

The debate will be streamed on the web here.

UPDATE: Sorry, I was watching the state Board of Education and missed just about everything but Gene Jeffress saying he had a fishing and hunting license and had lived in the district for about forever. (Unlike, presumably, Republican Tom Cotton, who ran some ads during the debate to remind any viewers that he'd be on the ballot in the fall to win a return to the Washington area, where he's spent most of his life since leaving Arkansas after high school graduation.)

UPDATE II: Roby Brock sums up. He didn't hear much to differentiate. The Democrats defended Social Security, something Tom Cotton most assuredly does NOT do.

Watch the REPLAY here.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
