Sen. Jason Rapert, much in the news this week, won't pass the 2018 election without opposition.

Maureen Skinner, a Democrat, is beginning her campaign with an event from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight at the Brick Room in Conway. Facebook page here. Skinner, 46, who is a licensed psychological examiner in Conway, also has a campaign page. She's talking health care, jobs and education.

Skinner has never run for office before. She said the 2016 national election left her feeling "on edge" and with a belief that "somebody needed to do something." After participating in the women's march in Little Rock, she said she decided that something would be a run for office. Skinner, one of a class of six when she graduated from high school in Fox, continued her education at UCA. She emphasized: "I'm running for the Senate, not against Jason Rapert." She said he spent enough time talking about Jason Rapert.
