LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas Farm Bureau is hosting a Measure the Candidate forum Tuesday, April 22, at the Wyndham Riverfront Hotel in North Little Rock.

Candidates for the state’s constitutional offices are scheduled to attend and address the audience. Additionally, candidates for the United States Senate race and 2nd Congressional District have been invited to participate.

"Arkansas’ constitutional offices are highly contested this year," said Randy Veach, president of Arkansas Farm Bureau. "Arkansas has open seats for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and the 2nd Congressional District. Additionally, Arkansas has one of the highest-profile Senate races in the nation.

"The purpose of our Measure the Candidate forum is to ensure we have members who understand where the candidates stand on issues that are important to Farm Bureau and Arkansas agriculture. Our members have a well-earned reputation of being active and vocal on local, state and national political issues."

Registration for the meeting begins at 9 a.m. with the forum beginning at 9:30 a.m. The meeting is expected to conclude by mid-afternoon. It is open to Farm Bureau members and the news media.
