Chris Bequette Challenges Rapert and Webb toLincoln-Douglas Debate Series Across Arkansas

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASESeptember 14, 2021


“Today, I am challenging Jason Rapert and Doyle Webb each to a series of 5 to 10 Lincoln-Douglas style debates to be hosted by Republican County Committees or similar Republican Party-affiliated groups. Republican voters deserve to be fully informed about the candidates they might vote for. The format and the number of events will benefit voters greatly by allowing them to contrast, compare, scrutinize and examine the candidates’ political records and visions for State Government.”


“I have been quite clear that my vision for Arkansas is to finally cut and dismantle the Democrat Party version of State Government that still exists and finally, put in place the winning Republican version of State Government. For the good of Arkansas and Republican voters, I look forward to a robust series of debates with Jason Rapert and Doyle Webb and an in-depth discussion of the issues that matter most in the daily lives of all Arkansans.”
