LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - After facing a passionate crowd of Arkansans at a town hall in Springdale, U.S. Senator Tom Cotton is heading to Little Rock for another one. The only difference is this time he will bring along Congressman French Hill to help answer questions from the crowd.
In February, Cotton faced a crowd of more than 2,000 people at a Springdale High School auditorium. Throughout the night, Cotton took tough questions from a crowd that was ready to be heard.
One of the many topics discussed at that town hall was health care, where the crowd adamantly supported the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. When House Republicans introduced a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, Cotton was one of its loudest critics, asking GOP congressmen to take their time in crafting the replacement. That bill ultimately failed, never making it out of the House.
While the two GOP legislators may not face a crowd as loud or as big as Cotton's first town hall, the Embassy Suites room they plan to hold the event in has a capacity of roughly 700 people.
The event officially kicks off at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, April 17 at the Embassy Suites in downtown Little Rock. Seating is first come, first serve to all who wish to attend. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.
