Womack Encourages College Republicans
Womack, a member of the appropriations committee, addressed a crowd of about 100 members of the College Republicans.
College Republicans also introduced several other state and local Republican candidates, including state House of Representative from the 89th District, Charlie Collins and Cristi Beaumont, running for Circuit Judge.
“I see a lot of innocent young people, many probably with student loan debt, uncertain about the job market going out of school,” Womack said.
He went on to describe the biggest issue the Republican party should be focusing on: the deficit.
The congressman stressed that Republicans should be shunning social issues, like abortion and gay marriage, and focus on economic issues, criticizing his fellow representative Todd Akin for straying from economic issues.
Womack also stressed the importance of students, like the UA College Republicans, in the grassroots campaigning that he believes will win most, if not all, of Arkansas’s public offices for the Republican party.
“We’re very lucky to have him here,” said Grant Hodges, chairman of the College Republicans.
