Broadway, Copeland and Darr interviewed

By: 20 April 2010 No Comment

Trying to figure out who to vote for in the upcoming Arkansas lieutenant governor’s race? We’ve got interviews with all three candidates — Republicans Donnie Copeland and Mark Darr as well as Democrat Shane Broadway — up on the podcast page. Each interview is relatively short so take a few minutes and learn a bit more about what they stand for and hope to achieve as lieutenant governor.

Whoever prevails in the November elections will succeed Bill Halter, the current lieutenant governor. Halter, a Democrat, is running for U.S. Senate and faces incumbent Blanche Lincoln in the May primaries.

Having said that, here’s a little bit about each candidate and where to access their podcasts directly:

The Republicans

Donnie Copeland and Mark Darr have a primary on May 18. Copeland is the pastor of the Apostolic Church in North Little Rock. You can access his podcast here and visit his campaign site here.

Darr is a licensed insurance agent and co-owns the MAD Pizza Company in Rogers. You can access his podcast here and visit his campaign site here.

The Democrat

Shane Broadway, a Bryant resident finishing up his last term in the Arkansas Senate, faces no primary opponent. Instead, he’s gearing up for his race against the winner of the aforementioned Republican primary.

Here’s a bit of disclaimer — he is endorsed by the Arkansas Realtors Political Action Committee, but that doesn’t matter much here at FirstArkansasNews.net as these podcasts are being offered in hopes that voters will learn a bit about the candidates. Yes, I’m the director of media relations at the Arkansas Realtors Association, but that doesn’t mean I’m endorsing anyone.

Having said that, you can access Broadway’s podcast here and his campaign site here.

Want more candidate interviews? I’ve got a lot of audio to edit, so stay tuned!
