Robbie Wilson, described as a progressive Democrat, has established an exploratory committee to raise money  for the $10,000 filing fee to oppose incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Steve Womack in the Third District.

Wilson, a tax preparer who lives in Fort Smith, has long participated in Democratic politics and has an agenda similar, a spokesman said, to that of Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Wilson will speak Saturday at an event being held by the Arkansas New Progressives from noon to 4 p.m. at MacArthur Park in Little Rock. They'll be organizing get out the vote and canvassing efforts.

A Wilson release cites his positions on women's rights, veterans, "deinstitutionalizing racism and bigotry," and a "practical plan" to improve schools.

He has a website. And also Facebook.
