Students heard speeches from candidates in attendance and voted on each race once the speeches concluded.
Rick Crawford won the straw poll for the First Congressional District over his opponent Princella Smith. “I am honored that the delegates to the Arkansas Federation of College Republicans would vote for my campaign of traditional American values. These future leaders in Arkansas and Washington understand the critical issues facing our nation and to have their vote is a vote of confidence for my campaign,” said Crawford.
