Voting Comparison - Holt, Hendren, & Baker

After reading, you make up your mind or at the least - 
BE willing to strongly question your candidate about issues that concern you!! 

Are they willing to speak with you as long as it takes to fully explain why they are taking a certain stance!
Are they of a personal character you can identify with?

Do they Live the principals they espouse?  

Considering five [5] candidates do not have any legislative track record,
ask yourself this question:
What does Arkansas truly need??
  1. A person who will have solid conservative values willing to stand up to the pressure of special interests, 
  2. A person who avoids voting on hard issues, follows Party dictates without question and is well versed in the backdoor deal making, or 
  3. A person who will have to learn on the job in a shark infested environment??
